– Solaris –

Managed to watch “Solaris” (2002) in the end, despite the fact the film seemed way more confusing than the novel itself.

Yet the concept were simple, a man entered a planet where any people died in the past could come to life, whether near the area or purely from someone’s memories. The man bumped into his wife who died many years ago, which he hoped to make amends for not being able to be at her side at her death.

It was a very strange film for sure, the whole of it was very difficult to focus on as it was slow and have very little surprises, just like the novel itself. However it seemed, the novel and the film gave the man a chance to amend himself regarding the regrets he had of his wife. Solaris to me, seemed a place where we can finish our regrets we have ever had.
