Talking Pictures: Andrei Rublev

The life, times and afflictions of the fifteenth-century Russian iconographer St. Andrei Rublev.

An expansive Russian drama, this film focuses on the life of revered religious icon painter Andrei Rublev (Anatoliy Solonitsyn). Drifting from place to place in a tumultuous era, the peace-seeking monk eventually gains a reputation for his art. But after Rublev witnesses a brutal battle and unintentionally becomes involved, he takes a vow of silence and spends time away from his work. As he begins to ease his troubled soul, he takes steps towards becoming a painter once again.

"It evinces a complex understanding of spirituality and faith that would inform all of Andrei Tarkovsky's subsequent films." - Slant Magazine

"It is not a film that needs to be processed or even understood, only experienced and wondered at." - The Guardian

"It's Tarkovsky's lighter touches, coupled with his majestic vision, that makes Andrei Rublev such compulsive viewing some 25 years after its original release." - Empire Magazine
