Certainly one of the more interesting and unique silent movies that you will
see, "Aelita" is well worth watching despite its flaws. It's no
masterpiece, but it offers an intriguing and often creative mix of science
fiction, melodrama, and history. It also has an interesting story that
holds your attention and moves at a pretty good pace.
Don't be automatically put off from seeing this film by the fact that
everyone mentions the dose of silly Soviet propaganda that comes with the
rest of it. It's definitely there, but the political elements are not
terribly obtrusive or heavy-handed, although there are a couple of times
when they are unintentionally humorous. There are many other themes that
are just as prominent, or more so - such as relationships and jealousy,
fantasy and reality, real-life concerns versus idealistic
The dual settings of Moscow and Mars are used rather well, setting off the
differences and similarities between the two societies and relating them to
the concerns of the characters. There is a nice contrast between the
settings and props in Moscow, which are drab but effective, stressing the
pressing concern of everyday matters, and the weird, distinctive Martian
sets and costumes. The latter are creative and interesting to look at, and
if they are sometimes a bit over-the-top, they are no more so than most
cinematic conceptions of other planets. The film's historical setting is
also quite interesting in itself. It is set a few years before the movie's
release, at a time when Russia was just emerging from the chaos of
revolution and civil war. The atmosphere of rebuilding and uncertainty
forms an important part of both the plot and the themes of the movie, and it
also provides a historical look at an often forgotten era. Most of the cast
and characters (at least the ones in Moscow) are believable enough that you
want to find out what happens to them amidst all this.
You can certainly find plenty of better silent movies or better sci-fi
movies than this, but you would find many more that are far worse, and not
nearly so distinctive. For the price of putting up with a handful of
political blurbs, you get to see an interesting story with some substance
and plenty of unusual and creative details.
