Smee !

Can you get me a movie ? it's called "Ikarie XB-1"  must have english subtitles and the original movie unmodified .... I'm not interested in the butchered American version....  


I must have it ! .... name your price...





In 2005 Cesky Film released a DVD of the original Czech version of the film with English subtitles and presented in its original Techniscope 2.35:1 widescreen aspect ratio. The DVD included the footage removed by AIP from the US version, including the original ending.





Plot

In the year 2163 the starship Ikarie XB-1 (Ikarus XB-1) is sent to the mysterious "White Planet" orbiting the star Alpha Centauri. Travelling at near-light speed, the journey takes around 28 months for the astronauts, although the effects of relativity mean that 15 years will have elapsed on Earth by the time they reach their destination. During the flight the 40-strong multinational crew must adjust to life in space, as well as dealing with various hazards they encounter, including a derelict 20th century spaceship armed with nuclear weapons, a deadly radioactive "dark star" and the mental breakdown of one of the crew, who threatens to destroy the spacecraft.




Ikarie XB-1 was the second science fiction film made in Czechoslovakia. It was a hit at the 1963 Trieste Science Fiction Film Festival[1] and it is now widely regarded as one of the best Soviet Bloc science fiction films of the era, boasting impressive production design, above-average special effects, a strong ensemble cast and an intelligent screenplay (although much of the subtlety of the original is lost in the English-language version).

Yibs, there's a German edition of it which has the language options of German or the original Czech, and the subtitles options include English. It's 90 mins in duration.

If Smee can't obtain it for you, let me know; I'll be making a German order quite soon, and I can easily include this DVD.

No problem. It might take 2 or 3 weeks - is that okay?

Yib. I've never heard of Ikarie XB-1. It must be a good Sci fi if you are looking for it.
