Movie Reviews

"Somewhere (A Place for us)" lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.
bernie | Arlington, Texas | 07/05/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)

"There's a place for us,
Somewhere a place for us.
Peace and quiet and open air
Wait for us
Somewhere.
There's a time for us,
Some day a time for us,
Time together with time to spare,
Time to look, time to care,
Someday!
Somewhere.
We'll find a new way of living,
We'll find a way of forgiving
Somewhere.

There's a place for us,
A time and place for us.
Hold my hand and we're half way there.
Hold my hand and I'll take you there
Somehow,
Someday,
Somewhere!

Now DEFA bring that reality to us in the form of a futuristic space movie. This story is surprisingly well portrayed given the budget and the era of production.

Should we even be exploring space? Some of our spaceships are missing. Are we up against some unknown force or a diabolical plot? Moreover, just who are the good guys and bad guys if any?

Because Professor Oli Tal's (Rolf Hoppe) daughter is among the missing, he goes in search of the answers. Yet it looks like he already knows something.

To add to the confusion or complexity we have a long-distance love story between Daniel 'Dan' Lagny (Iwan Andonov) and Prof. Maria Scholl (Cox Habbema). Will love triumph or is there a higher purpose?

I have to admit I cheated and watched with subtitles. However, after a while I had to ignore them, as the English translation is not very accurate when an attempt was made to explain instead of, translate. It may have been more useful of the subtitles were in German.
--------------------------------------------------------
The DVD contains the standard extras. After watching them you need to re-visit the film.
