“Whatever falls from heaven, you may keep.” So goes the unwritten law of the Kazakh steppes. A law avidly adhered to by the inhabitants of a small village, who collect the space debris that falls downrange from the nearby Baikonur space station. The last two youthful members of the village are the radio operator Iskander, known as Gagarin, and the spirited Nazira. While Nazira finds it increasing difficult to conceal her love for Iskander by means of her unconventional behaviour, Iskander is evidently not only crazy about Baikonur and the vastness of outer space, but also deeply smitten with the beautiful French astronaut Julie Mahé, whose journey to the stars he wistfully follows on television.

Baikonur Audience Reviews

SpuffyWeb Sadly Over-hyped
Ensofter Overrated and overhyped
Tedfoldol everything you have heard about this movie is true.
Billy Ollie Through painfully honest and emotional moments, the movie becomes irresistibly relatable
johnnghome It may be a quirky film but it seems to show an inner human desire. This is a movie with a plot that is based on something really new and different; not like the millions of other movies out with pre-set money-spinning plot.Imaging a gorgeous astronaut falling out of the sky who is visually so delightful as compared to the mundane looks of the people around in the Steppes. In a "finder's keeper" society, won't ithere be an urge to keep such a beautiful pet!
bombersflyup Baikonur although quite charming, isn't much of a film. It is labelled a Comedy/Drama/Romance, but I'm not sure if it has enough of any of these to warrant the label. The Julie character is awful and really hurts the quality and continuity of the film. Nazira is the highlight for me.
Carela1 I thought that it was a delightful film. Somewhat quirky plot but well played, beautifully filmed and showed real-time Russian space-age equipment and training. IMHO, too many self-appointed "critics" spend their time running down films they don't like. Why not use your "talents" in writing about what you LIKED about these Prime videos from Amazon? It has gotten so bad that I ignore most comments and go by the cast, directors and general plots. Just realized that I did not write enough to submit a review. OK, the actress who played Julie (Marie Villepin) is a heartthrob and the life of the Kazakhs and their beautiful carpets is very enlightening and attractive.
ax-30 I watched this movie as a part of film festival, and I am glad that I did.The story, as the name suggests, set in Baikonur, Kazakhstan. It is a space port or a cosmodrome.The story revolves around a Kazakh village boy, who falls in love with a French astronaut.To me the most striking was the how the ultimate rocket technology is starkly contrasted by the very harsh living conditions of Kazakh steppe. It is just beautiful.The movie has romance, drama, and comedy very brilliantly fused together, and done just right. My another motive behind watching this movie was to see a film from totally unknown(to me) culture and country.If you like space(you will get to see some interesting locations of Baikonur cosmodrome), and romance, you must watch this movie, preferably with your romantic interest or significant other! It is a nice trip to a different land!
