alt "Soviet director Andrei Tarkovsky's great meditation on the imperiled future of humanity. No other film maker so powerfully evokes a world of the spirit existing beyond surface appearances, and in doing so, Tarkovsky creates some of the most piercingly beautiful images ever captured on film."
-- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

Drama; In Swedish and French with English subtitles and in English; 145 minutes; 1986

"Andrei Tarkovsky's last film is a grand, unworldly, even antiworldly religious vision...The blend of midlife crisis and existential terror is reminiscent of the films of Ingmar Bergman, but Tarkovsky makes it a world of his own. His images have a transcendental glow."
-- Richard Brody, The New Yorker

Directed by Andrei Tarkovsky
