I normally don't make videos on movies I like, but this one didn't get the exposure it deserves. I totally understand if you decide not to watch this video and instead watch the movie for yourself (available on Amazon Prime). It'd be cool if you came back to this video afterwards though :) . In some ways this movie is more relevant now since most people feel shut off from the world due to the pandemic. I appreciate all of you that support what I do, it means a lot.

  • Knowing people went through holocausts, famines, and piles of misery, this makes a very unbelievable concept. We are far from fragile beings the movie tries to portray. Also very poorly designed conflict with captain. In challenging situation like this, both sides can have strong a arguments for their side, but they made a stupid villain of him. The movie is dressed to look like a hard scifi, but ended up being very superficial for me.

  • Very deep movie. Most people won't go for something this dark and this slow though. Still wondering what was in the rescue rocket. Spoiler: this isn't a space travel movie. It's a time travel movie and the ship is a metaphor for Earth's modern technological society.

  • They Mima system sucks, when it basically committed suicide. And it's sound like a horrible idea to dump all fuel in one go. Sounds like it should have been located on different parts of ship with zero risk of chain reaction

  • The shot of the algae wasn't to show that the algae reserves were running low -- it was to show that the algae was contaminated. There's a scene earlier in the movie at the algae farm where they talk about what the algae should look like, and that the brown they use as an example is no good. The captain's lies help doom the people of the ship. He keeps giving false hope which, when revealed to be nothing, causes the morale to drop even moreso than if the people were given the truth in the first place. His initial statement of 2 years. Telling everyone that there was a rescue probe with fuel when he had no idea what it was and what was on it. Even his choice to force the Mima to keep runnning even though he was warned it very likely would break, and then when it does break to punish MR. The captain crippled the ship just as much as any collision would have.

  • This is a great movie not because it's depressing, but because it puts us, humans, on cosmic perspectives. Not against monsters, alien invasion, or rouge asteroids, but against space and time itself. This movie demonstrate everything that we care about in the end doesn't even matter. Our tools, hatred, hopes, dreams, hard work, family, and even our species were gone by the end of the movie.

  • Shoals The screeching oak planks and the sudden shock announce the gale has pushed them too far east, trapping the whaler on a hidden rock - the broken molar of a howling beast. She’s listing port. He knows what he should do: furl sails and cut the masts before she tips, supply and board the boats. Then what? The crew awaits the first command from his pursed lips. At best they’ll reach Tahiti. Odds are narrow they’ll find it, though. He braces for the worst: short straws, scraped femurs cracked to suck the marrow, exposure, madness, all-consuming thirst, until their blood congeals and sets them free. He grasps the rail and stares into the sea. By Stephen Scaer

  • I'm so glad that someone with a large following here on ROones is talking about this film. I remember looking for a good horror film to watch on Hulu one night last fall, and I spotted Aniara and thought, "Oh, this seems interesting." But after I saw it, I felt like I found a hidden gem in a sea of mediocrity.

  • I need to see this movie. It looks amazing. My only thing is, if i was the captain and i heard we would have to jettison our fuel right after i did a course correct. I would use what ever time i had to correct course and risk blowing up the ship. Itd be better letting everyone die a quick death then put them through that. Side note, futurama covered your question why they didnt ask for help. If they were going at full speed when they started drifting, they would never slow down. So if they sent a rescue ship it would be going at the same speed and never catch up. Add in the fact it would take hours if not days for transmissions to be received. So they would also just have too much of a head start. After their lost though. My best guess would of been to blow up the ship. Seal the hull and find what ever they could blow up. You would lose part of the ship, but the explosion might of been enough to change course back towards our solar system. If not they would of died faster, which in my book would of been a bonus as opposed to decaying ship cults.

  • I knew about Aniara because the album "Tiara" from Seventh Wonder. One of their song says "Unlike Aniara, you won`t fall to your demise" (refering to Tiara, earth's new hope). This is an album wich concep it's the same, false hope and depressing ending. Just saying.

  • I'm aware that I am an earthly being, unable and unready to perceive the vastness of space. I believe if I was meant for it, then I'd be able to do those things but I am not. I would rather die here on Earth to the violent tides of it's natural cycles than in black nothingness of open space. Earth brought me into this life, and it will bring me out of it.

  • I think you hit the nail on the head as escapism and hope being something humans can't really live without. Religion has been with us for a long time, probably ever since we started thinking practically and started making stuff. It makes total sense that M.R. joins the cult in the end as making the ship a home has gone out the window, and the cult is the only source offering hope. So ya, sign up, stay 'Sane' and wait for the end. Its too bad they were not able to figure a way to a planet but I'm unsure how good that would have been. They could have figured a way to continually live on the ship but they didn't put any resources into that. Anyway depressing flick about the end of humanity. Also, I think M.R. did a oopsie by reminding everyone of what they left behind. That glimmer of remembrance is sometimes the trigger to set off people in deep depression and yea, they might kill themselves and their child cause 'They will only live a life on this ship' and that's sad and unbearable.

  • They always forget that people need connection with nature. Even if its no more than ornamental plants in a pot. In Sci-Fi movies we often see 'advanced civilizations' with only buildings and floating vehicles. People can not (happily) live with only tech. A planet with a really advanced society should have parks and trees everywhere. The builders of these spaceships should include greenhouses with some smaller animals in it like hamsters, ducks or parakeets. Better for a human mind than a computer introducing happiness in your brain. Maybe they made this movie to make the viewers aware of the most important things that we should miss out in this situation. But I have not seen the movie. Btw I don't know how the YT algorithm took me here because I don't watch movies (average one every 2 years).

  • What’s interesting about this film is how humans lose hope so quickly, and instead of using their time to try and keep things up running; they just allow themselves to die. Had they stopped worrying and lived their lives, and actually pulled together to focus on fixing their situation; they would have lived long full lives and brought forth new generations. Instead; they lost themselves to hopelessness; holding onto a past and a world that they could never be a part of again...ever; not even on Mars. This is why interstellar travel would be such a problem to begin with. If we were to leave our planet to explore a outside of our galaxy; we would never actually see our destination. It would be our distant ancestors who actually have that honor. The rest of our lives would be spent on spaceship in a completely communist society; where everything from the our jobs to the number of children we’re allowed to have is already predetermined.
