When I was little, my mother and I loved to sit and look into the night sky, just like this. To dream that we are not alone, in the whole universe, that the stars are the eyes of the angels who are watching over us. But when my mother got sick, none of them helped. That's when I realized that no one is out there. Only silence, emptiness and the cold.

Off the bat, though the movie has decent special effects and CGI, the English dubbing in the version I watched was performed by people reading lines, not actually acting. The result is far less than satisfactory. Perhaps viewed in the original Russian language with subtitles, it would have come off better. Regardless, I was sucked in and soon could ignore that most of the time. My biggest peeve was the lack of understanding that a meteor shower cannot happen on Earth during the daytime, though some large ones passing by the Earth can be seen during the day on occasion. Meteor showers though smash into the side of our planet that is facing forward as it travels around the sun. I'm no huge science geek, but we are smashing into them more than they are just randomly "falling to Earth". The night side of the Earth is always facing in the direction we are traveling around the sun, so "all meteor showers happen at night" simply because that's the side that's smashing into them as we travel around the sun. The movie makers obviously didn't check their science facts or thought we were all too ignorant to know. An early scene in the movie has them "falling to earth" in broad daylight.
