Working from a dullish source - a novel by the Soviet sci-fi eminence Aleksandr Kazantsev - director Klushantsev overpowers the party-line dialogue with excellent effects. Upon arrival to Venus, cosmonauts find furious volcanoes and sundry prehistoric beasts (a cackling, swooping pterodactyl is most memorable). The filmmakers, however, forgot to include scantily clad cavewomen; this omission was quickly corrected by Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Woman (1968); the up-and-coming culprit was Peter Bogdanovich. – by Robert Skotak
French artist Félix Ziem is one of the most original landscape painters of the 19thcentury. The exhibition Wanderer on the Sea of Light presents Ziem as an artist who left his mark on 19th century painting and who is mostly known for his paintings of Istanbul and Venice, where the city and the sea are intertwined.
