Maybe at filmoteka@filmoteka.pl can tell you how to find the polish films and at your nearer cineclub organize a "Lem week".
"Marianengraben", dir. Achim Bornhak: you can write mail@abovetheline.de, agents of Bornhak; maybe he can send you a copy (it was a student work, Oscar nominated).
"First spaceship to Venus" (Der Schweigende Stern, upon Astronauts), dir. Kurt Maetzig, is available in DVD (look the web!).
French, czech and dutch films are hard to find, due to american film distributors blocking policies.

Good luck!

Flexi, your meta dialog is not only beautiful, but also true.
Is not such questions-answers we always do, in the belief of going further?
Also, if you draw a line through the spaces between the "w" and the "h" in your dialog, you'll find a zig-zag path, kind of labyrinth, an image of god.

I think science-fiction is over, especially after Lem: why classify art as if it were socks? There are only good and bad books (Dante's Commedia would be, if in such way classifiable, "fantasy-and-horror-comedy").

Regards,

Carlos

I did like Tarkowsky's Solaris, though it's not really an adaptation of the book (an impossible challenge, I believe), but another brilliant and personal masterpiece of the great russian director. When I saw the american version cassette in the video club, I took it, hoping at least a few special effects on the phisical transformations of the planet. I was thinking, perhaps, in the star trip of Bowman, though I know Soderbergh is not Kubrick.
But the american film seems to have been made out of Tarkowsky's rather than from the Lem's book. And that's all: an average american perception of a russian genius metaphysics -nothing at all, but boring.
The films don't deserve the book, but least they are ways to make the world speak about Lem, a great master of two centuries.
