Attraction (Притяжение) is Russia’s most recent and visually advanced science-fiction drama directed by Fyodor Bondarchuk. The film cost only $6.3 million to make and managed to collect over $18 million in revenue.

What appears as a typical alien invasion story at first, is anything but. The film’s plot, which takes place in modern day Moscow, offers a unique story that differs greatly from the vast majority of extraterrestrial films produced by Hollywood in the past.

Attraction is a symbiosis of Holywood-style visual effects and genuinely Russian character. We recommend this film to anyone interested in Russian cinematography or Sci-Fi in general.
