Cautionary Tales of Totalitarianism hit the Russian Silver Screen: The Inhabited Island

http://www.russiatoday.com/features/news/35590
A classic Soviet science fiction story has been the big New Year hit in Russian cinemas. The Inhabited Island, the story of an astronaut struggling to survive on a totalitarian planet, is the most expensive Russian film ever produced. However, it’s not just the multi-million dollar special effects which grab the audience’s attention. The novel was written four decades ago and its plot takes place in the future, but the producers say it is still very relevant for today. “This is a story, quite understandable across the whole world where the totalitarian regimes are quite real. Secondly, we tried to do it in a very universal way to articulate the ideas set up by the authors,” producer Aleksandr Rodnyansky said.
