Overview

Originally released in East Germany as Der Schweigende Stern ("The Silent Star") and in Poland as Milczaca gwiazda, First Spaceship on Venus was partially intended as an anti-nuclear tract. In 1985, a strange, extraterrestrial spool is discovered, leading to a manned expedition to Venus. The multinational crew includes American Brinkman (Gunther Simon), African Talua (Juliusz Ongewe), and Japanese Sumiko Ogimura (Yoko Tani). After several special-effects setpieces (and reams of dogmatic dialogue later), the crew lands on Venus, only to discover that the planet's population was wiped out by a nuclear error. Armed with this knowledge, the expedition returns to earth with a warning for all mankind. Though First Spaceship on Venus seems dull and ponderous, it's unfair to judge the film by its American-release print, which was only half as long as the original release version. The film was based on a novel by noted Eastern Bloc sci-fi novelist Stanislaw Lem.

    The Great Stanislaw Lem

    Dear Mr. Ericson, FYI Stanislam Lem was Polish sci-fi author. Eastern Bloc??? His books have nothing to do with the political system of the country.
