The  big  baby  floats  in  space  beside   the  Earth,  looking  at  it.  Father  and  son  embrace  on  the   front  step  of  the  lakeside  house   which  the  camera  zooms  out  to   reveal  is  located  on  an  island  in  the   middle  of  an  ocean  on  the  planet   Solaris.

  4. 4. FILMS  IN  SPACE Página  2 All  this  films  speak  about  what  happend  when  a  person  is  absolutely  alone.  What  or  who  we  are,  we:  the  humanity?  What  happens  with  the  Artificial  Intelligent?  Do  the  computers   have  feelings?    About  the  sense  of  live.    One  conclusion  and  advice:  if  you  know  first  the  story    then  the  film  is  more  interesting,  more  amazing,  more  deep.
