Storyline

The year is 1985. The unmanned Soviet space station Salyut 7, which is in low Earth orbit, suddenly stops responding to commands from the Control Center. If the space station - the pride of Soviet space engineering - falls from the sky, not only will it damage the image of the country, it could also be a disaster bringing untold casualties. To investigate the failure and prevent the catastrophe, people must be sent to the station. Yet no one in history has ever attempted to dock an uncontrolled vehicle in space. To this day, this mission is considered to be the most technically challenging in the history of space exploration. Written by CTB.ru

Goofs

Shudin lists off the four cosmonauts lost until that date in the Soviet space program, among whom he mentions "Yuri Dobrovolsky". In fact he meant Georgy (George) Dobrovolsky, who along with Viktor Patsayev and Vladislav Volkov died in 1971 on Soyuz 11 when a valve accidentally opened during the re-entry procedure and the capsule's atmosphere was vented to space.

A real gem
28 January 2018 | by BonesnapSee all my reviews

A film like this is always going to draw comparisons to Gravity, and while it doesn't contain the kind of hair-raising action scenes of that film, Salyut-7 does manage to offer a sustained level of tension that lifts it far above the average space movie fare.

This is a good dramatic story well told. Initially I found the main character to be a rather stuffy and wooden, but as the film progresses this reveals itself as a reserved stoicism that makes him a well-rounded and likeable character. The photography and special effects are first class and the acting is universally convincing.

I had no expectations when watching this and was pleasantly surprised. That it is based on a little known true story just makes it all the more exciting and engrossing. The short mid-credits footage of the actual cosmonauts is worth sticking around for too. It's a well-deserved 9/10 from me.
