1966 · d. Andrei Tarkovsky – with subtitles
Starring Anatoliy Solonitsyn, Ivan Lapikov, Nikolai Burlyaev
On a turbulent journey through medieval Russia, a Christian icon painter attempts to retain his faith and creative vision through political turmoil, famine, Tatar raids, pagan ceremonies, and more. A work of visionary cinema if ever there was one, this epic from Andrei Tarkovsky (Stalker, Solaris) was lauded by The Guardian as “the greatest arthouse film of all time.”
