Based on a novel by Stanislaw Lem, Solaris centers on widowed psychologist Kris Kelvin (Donata Banionis), who is sent to a space station orbiting a water-dominated planet called Solaris to investigate the mysterious death of a doctor, as well as the mental problems plaguing the dwindling number of cosmonauts on the station. Finding the remaining crew to be behaving oddly and aloof, Kelvin is more than surprised when he meets his seven-years-dead wife Khari (Natalya Bondarchuk) on the station. It quickly becomes apparent that Solaris possesses something that brings out repressed memories and obsessions within the cosmonauts on the space station, leaving Kelvin to question his perception of reality.

Ground control has been receiving strange transmissions from the three remaining cosmonauts aboard the Solaris space station: Dr. Snouth (Yuri Yarvet), Dr. Sartorius (Anatoli Solonitsyn), and Dr. Gibarian (Sos Sarkisyan). The Solaris program is at a crossroads, and psychologist Dr. Kris Kelvin (Donatas Banionis) has been assigned to visit the crew, report on their mental health, and recommend a course of action to the agency. On the day before his flight, he is visited by a former cosmonaut, Berton (Vladislav Dvozhetsky), who, years earlier, was sent on a rescue mission, and had a firsthand encounter with the bizarre metamorphosis of the Solaris ocean. But Kelvin is unmoved, believing that human emotion has no bearing in the search for Truth, and raises the possibility of, not only abandoning the Solaris mission, but aiming radiation at the turbulent ocean in order to destroy its inexplicable activity. Upon arriving at the space station, Kelvin is greeted by apathy and evasion, along with the tragic news of Gibarian's suicide. A videotaped message shows a frail, disheveled Gibarian driven to despair by tormented visions of a lost loved one, and a profound sense of isolation. However, after a restless night's sleep, he begins to realize the validity of Berton and the crew's seeming hallucinations after his dead wife Hari (Natalya Bondarchuk) mysteriously reappears on the station.

Solaris is Andrei Tarkovsky's visually hypnotic, deeply affecting, and thematically accessible film on love, conscience, and reconciliation. Similar to other Tarkovsky films, most notably Andrei Rublev and The Sacrifice, Solaris is an unsettling portrait of man's inequitable, often destructive interaction with his environment. Symbolically, Tarkovsky uses curvilinear structures, confined spaces, and disorganization to represent the emotional and physical turmoil of the space station. Furthermore, periodic changes in lighting and moments of weightlessness preclude any sense of rhythm, creating a literal imbalance. Chromatic shifts, which initially occur to delineate chronology, increase in frequency with the development of the story, reflecting the crew's assimilation of the two states of consciousness. In the end, the Truth proves to be as elusive as the thinly veiled reality of Solaris: Can a man truly reconcile with his irretrievable past, or is he inexorably bound to the guilt and regret of his spiritual longing?

El doctor Kris Kelvin (Donatas Banionis) viaja al planeta Solaris para investigar unos extraños sucesos en la estación espacial que esta situada en la órbita del planeta y elaborar un informe de los mismos. Sin embargo una vez allí se enfrentara a algo totalmente desconocido que pone a prueba toda su experiencia profesional lejos de toda lógica humana. Basada en una novela de Stanislaw Lem.

Trois chercheurs Guibarian, Sartorius et Snaut, en mission, depuis longtemps, sur la planète Solaris ne donnent plus de nouvelles à la communauté scientifique qui les a missionné, et le programme de recherche sur la solaristique semble stagner. Kris Kelvin, psychologue, est chargé de partir sur le vaisseau afin d'examiner la santé mentale des trois chercheurs et d'en faire le rapport. Peu à peu, cet examen clinique va se transformer en l'exploration de la propre conscience de Kris...

На космическую станцию, сотрудники которой давно и тщетно пытаются сладить с загадкой планеты Солярис, покрытой Океаном, прибывает новый обитатель, психолог Крис Кельвин, чтобы разобраться в странных сообщениях, поступающих со станции, и «закрыть» ее вместе со всей бесплодной «соляристикой». Поначалу ему кажется, что немногие уцелевшие на станции ученые сошли с ума. Потом он и сам становится жертвой жуткого наваждения: ему является его бывшая возлюбленная Хари, некогда на земле покончившая с собой.

I saw this at Filmex Festival in Hollywood 1972. The film reel broke about 5 minutes before the end of the film and the house lights went on-- Half the audience walked out before an announcement was made and the remaining 5 minutes of the film was shown. Very cryptic, but amusing. 50% of the audience never did see the true end of the film :-)
