Silent Running (1972) and my damned Soviet childhood :)
Just saw a classic sci-fi movie called Silent Running (1972). Very good emotional, sad and naive movie. Like it a lot. Thankfully its unlikely that situation with forests from this film can happen in real life.
I have no idea why at the end of the movie Lowell took Huey with him on board of Valley Forge before he nukes the ship, leaving Dewey alone in greenhouse drifting into deep space? Yes Huey was damaged but he still able to help Dewey or at least Dewey wont be alone.
PS. Because I spend my childhood in Soviet Union and modern Russia before immigration to Australia five years ago, I missed lots of classical films and serials and now I have a "mission" to watch them all.
PS I am 28 years old, so situation is not hopeless.
