2001, a space odyssey 01, l'odyssée de l'espace by Stanley Kubrick ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Extrait du résumé figurant sur la jaquette : En 1968 sortait le film qui allait bouleverser le monde de la science-fiction. Désormais, il y aurait "avant" et "après" 2001 : l'Odyssée de l'Espace. Ce chef-d'oeuvre échappe d'ailleurs totalement au temps qui passe. Malgré les progrès techniques réalisés depuis sa sortie dans les effets spéciaux, le film n'a pas pris une ride, prouvant de manière éclatante le génie visionnaire de Maître Kubrick... Pour commencer son voyage dans le futur, Kubrick nous offre une vision de notre passé préhistorique puis, grâce à un fondu-enchaîné magistral, nous projette plusieurs milliers d'années en avant. Dans un espace colonisé et aseptisé, l'atronaute Bowman va vivre la plus grande aventure de tous les temps et se trouver confronté à l'immortalité
