Film Details


Italy, USSR | 1983 | Andrei Tarkovsky


Long unavailable on 35mm in the U.S. (we last showed it in 1987!), Andrei Tarkovsky’s penultimate film—and the first movie he made outside the USSR—is a melancholy, poetic tale of alienation, exile, and homesickness. A Russian poet and musicologist (Oleg Yankovsky) experiences a crisis of confidence and faith while visiting Tuscany to research the life of a little-known 18th-century Russian composer. But the village’s mysterious lunatic (Erland Josephson) claims to have a remedy for the traveler’s despair. Unmissable! “An article of faith.” –Time Out Film Guide.
