In The Dust Of The Stars Review


Good
With characters named Xik and Thob, In the Dust of the Stars doesn't even pretend to be grounded in the real world unlike many of the DEFA films, produced behind the Iron Curtain in East Germany: It's a futuristic fantasy, deeply blended with shades of faaaar-out Barbarella.

Andrzej goes to outrageous lengths to belittle his passenger, as the two men obliquely battle for the attention of Krystyna. It all comes to a head with Andrzej pushing the non-swimming blonde kid into the water, right after tossing his beloved knife into the drink. And there's more to come after that.
