More melodrama than Sci-Fi, rather propaganda than melodrama. The film has its cinema roots in Fritz Lang's "Frau I'm Mond" (as for design and special effects) and literature ground at books of Konstantin Eduardovich Tsiolkovskii (with mad faith in great space future of mankind). Characters are shown very schematic and action is very poor. Scenario courses are at placard style too. Funny animation like educational school type of movies. Collors are powerful and very impressive. With little dark romantic atmosphere. Symphony music score is over-dramatic. But of cause will be happy-end. See very popular soviet comic Georgiy Michailovich Vitsin as serious scientific engineer.
