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

Stanley Kubricks 2001: Odyssee im Weltraum Stanley Kubrick's 2001: a space odyssey ( visu )
5 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in German and Dutch and held by 14 libraries worldwide
"2001 - Odyssee im Weltraum" ist der Countdown in die Zukunft, der Ausblick über das Schicksal der Menschheit, die Suche nach der Unendlichkeit. Mit seinen atemberaubenden visuellen Effekten (ausgezeichnet mit dem Oscar), dem unentrinnbaren Konflikt zwischen Mensch und Maschine, der überwältigenden Verschmelzung von Musik und Bewegung wurde der Film so einflussreich, dass Steven Spielberg ihn als den alles bestimmenden "Urknall" seiner Filmemacher-Generation definierte. Vielleicht ist "2001" das Meisterwerk von Stanley Kubrick (der das Drehbuch gemeinsam mit Arthur C. Clarke verfasste) - in jedem Fall wird es noch viele Generationen erschüttern, begeistern und inspirieren. Vor seiner Reise in die Zukunft besucht Kubrick unsere prähistorischen, affenähnlichen Vorfahren, um dann (mit einem der irrwitzigsten Schnitte der Filmgeschichte) viele Jahrtausende zu überspringen: Die Menschheit hat Kolonien im Weltraum gegründet. Von dort schickt Kubrick den Astronauten Bowman in die Tiefen des Alls, jenseits der menschlichen Vorstellungskraft - und vielleicht sogar in die Unsterblichkeit. "Öffne das Schleusentor, HAL!" Eine absolut einzigartige Reise voller Staunen und Rätsel kann beginnen... (Quelle: Amazon.de)
