ANDREI RUBLEV (1966)
Dir. Andrei Tarkovsky
Running time: 174 mins. approx.
Andrei Rublev is Tarkovsky's acclaimed epic about the life of the 15th century icon painter, charting his life through a turbulent period of Russian history. Rublev (Anatoli Solonitsyn) lives in a world consumed by feudal violence and human degradation, and the turmoil he sees all about him makes him lose the will to speak. After many years of silent travelling around medieval Russia, he meets a young boy who has taken charge of the construction of a large silver bell, and in him discovers the inspiration to speak again.
