Possibly the greatest movie ever made, Andrei Tarkovsky’s “Andrei Rublev” shimmers and shines… on art, faith and the Russian soul. It’s worth watching … and watching again. It’s a sweeping epic saga about the 14th cantury Russian icon painter of the same name. But it’s so much more. It’s a visual and spiritual feast, over three hours long the film is considered a masterpiece of modern cinema … and rightly so; it is stunning.
Because of it’s religious themes the film was shown only once in Moscow upon its release; it won a prize at the 1969 Cannes Film festival. We link to the wikipedia article on the film.
