This Czech pioneering and much-imitated feature is one of the cornerstones of contemporary sci-fi cinema. 

Adapted from Stanislaw Lem’s 1955 novel The Magellanic Cloud, and predating Gene Rodenberry’s Star Trek and Kubrick’s 2001, Ikarie XB-1’s influence can be seen on both - and on almost every other science-fiction vehicle that followed. 

A game-changing film that profoundly influenced the genre and showed that science-fiction movies weren't only about special effects; they were also high art." Alex Cox.
