Rating: 2/5 -- Non-sensical dub-fest in which a bunch of dry international dolts head out to Venus -- slowly. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- Strangely effective, rather depressing sci-fi flick,
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
Rating: 3/5 -- Among DEFA's minor treasures, and with a Dr. Strangelove character as Henry Gibson might have played him.
Description by OLDIES.com:
When an alien artifact discovered on Earth is found to have come from Venus an international team of astronauts embarks to investigate its origins.
Eight curious scientists in the far-future year 1985 try to find the source and meaning of a message disc from the planet Venus. Based on "The Astronauts" by the great Stanislaw Lem (SOLARIS), this SF curio also boasts a multinational cast, as well as beautiful photography and production design. Though Lem disowned the film, it stands on its own rather well and is probably one of the best SF films from the fifties.
