Andrei Tarkovsky's brilliant and epic masterpiece, based on the life of a 15th century Russian icon painter. Andrei Rublev created his amazing icons in a world filled with violence, horror and constant upheaval. Tartar warriors constantly raided Russia wreaking havoc and sowing tragedy everywhere; persecution was rife. From this context, Tarkovsky imagines 8 events in Rublev's life -- events so terrible they might have shocked him into silence... and yet so marvelous they could restore his lost faith, and his art.

Synopsis

Andrei Tarkovsky's brilliant and epic masterpiece, based on the life of a 15th century Russian icon painter. Andrei Rublev created his amazing icons in a world filled with violence, horror and constant upheaval. Tartar warriors constantly raided Russia wreaking havoc and sowing tragedy everywhere; persecution was rife. From this context, Tarkovsky imagines 8 events in Rublev's life -- events so terrible they might have shocked him into silence... and yet so marvelous they could restore his lost faith, and his art.

Description

A vast, free-form fresco of life in 15th-century Russia under the reign of Tartar invaders, beautifully composed and photographed. Based on the life of the eponymous Russian monk and icon painter, this film follows Roublev as he wanders, clinging to a powerful faith, through a gruesome landscape of barbarism and pagan rites.

Notes
