  • Deemed “dangerous” by the Soviet authorities of the time, and banned from release for several years, this magnificent and truly epic film is often regarded as Tarkovsky’s masterpiece and is unquestionably one of the greatest films ever made about an artist.

    Several of its set pieces, the sacking of a medieval town and the creation of a large bell, are amongst the greatest in Tarkovsky’s cinema. Cowritten by Andrei Konchalovsky.
