The Inhabited Island 2009

The Inhabited Island is a 2008-2009 science fiction film directed by Fyodor Bondarchuk based on a 1971 novel by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky of the same Russian name, published in English as Prisoners of Power.

Due to the length of the filmed material, the film is being released in two installments. The first was released in Russia on December 18, 2008 and the next is scheduled to be released in April 2009.

Plot: The film is set in the year 2157. The main character, Maxim Kammerer (Stepanov), is a space pilot of the Free Search Group on a voyage to a planet. His spaceship is damaged and he crash lands on an unknown planet. His ship explodes shortly after he crawls out of it, and he is shortly discovered by Zef (Garmash) and arrested. Guy Gaal (Fyodorov) was appointed to escort him. As they are making their way back to the capital by train, they are attacked by the so-called “degenerates”. The degenerates attack the military convoy and destroy a nearby tower, which Guy says is part of a missle defense network. Maxim demonstrates great physical prowess during the attack, and is quickly conscripted into the military when he arrives at their camp. He learns that this is the planet Saraksh, and that the country in which he has landed is governed by a militaristic dictatorship, ruled by the so-called Unknown Fathers. Two times each day, most of the entire population is stirred into a patriotic frenzy while a minority of citizens experience intense pain and convulsions. Maxim and his friends quickly realize that he is somehow immune to these effects, both the frenzy and the pain.
