Editor's NoteA thoughtful science-fiction film that springs from the infamous DEFA studio, EOLOMEA was filmed just a few years after Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY captured cinemagoers imaginations. The title refers to a message received from space by citizens still on earth. As they puzzle over what "eolomea" could mean, eight space craft go missing and a vast space station breaks off all communication. Although the special effects are a little creaky, the search for the missing vessels makes for absorbing viewing, and encompasses a broad range of familiar sci-fi themes; fans of genre classics such as Tarkovsky's SOLARIS and Douglas Trumbull's SILENT RUNNING should find much to love here.
