The Great Space Voyage
Bolshoe Kosmicheskoe Puteshestvie AKA The Big Space Travel
Russia, 1975, 66 minutes
The Great Space Voyage Synopsis

From the same studio that produced Richard Viktorov's diptych Moscow-Cassiopeia / Adolescents in the Universe comes this second teen-themed sci-fi adventure, in which three youngsters (one of them played by Mila Berlinskaya, who sings the film's theme song and went on to become a world-famous classical pianist) have to take command of a space flight when their adult captain comes down sick and is forced to quarantine himself. What sets The Great Space Voyage apart, however, is its explicit propaganda content: if you set your mind to something and persist at it, the film solemnly and sincerely reminds us, you can succeed no matter what the difficulty.

The production design for this film is commendable and I was amazed by the shoes of these teen astronauts. This Soviet space sage is unique as it features children who are very smart, independent and strong-willed enough to tackle a space mission. I was just quite confused with some of the scenes that feature these kids while they were on earth still, these scenes are scattered all throughout the film and sometimes they look quite irrelevant and will distract you from the film's flow. The acting portrayals of the three teens were impressive, especially that of the girl, she was a natural and danced well. The music in this movie is quite entertaining.

Honestly, I'm just so amused with this film and I can't really explain why.  There are ideas that are incoherent and there are countless flashback scenes  but I find the movie fascinating enough. The musical scoring is unique and reminds me a little of the background music of Japanese superheroes. There was a particular scene where the 3 teen cosmonauts were dancing,  that was entertaining but I felt queer just watching the dance steps. I'd like to believe that the flashback scenes were in some ways reminding the kids of their life back on earth, a sort of reminiscing perhaps. Queer but engrossing to watch.
