In 20th century were not filmed too much pure space-based science fiction movies in Eastern political block. I would rate this movie as very nice example of sense for this genre even through there was not filmed much of them. Everyone who is judging this movie by quality of special effects should use for their comparison with same aged pieces. Just imagine having the interior scenes and having the poorly animated exteriors replaced by appropriate expensive CGI in up to date movie quality (really imaginary, in reality it would be perversion to break existing piece of art). The movie technology developed as well as science knowledge (which was widely used in the movie to create realistic picture), but the messages in this story are still relevant. Micro-society during real long-term flight may experience very similar issues. There are some parts with significant influence of the fact that the movie was made in the Soviet block (critical mentioning of some attributes of western culture attributes), but overall i would say this does not spoil the movie or the story at all.
