Availability: Ready to download

Andrey Tarkovsky (1932-1986) is one of the eminent film makers of the 20th century. The five feature films he directed in the Soviet Union-among them Andrei Rublev, Solaris, and Stalker-brought him international fame. Evading censorship and mounting pressure by Soviet authorities, he did not return to the Soviet Union after completing Nostalghia in Tuscany in 1983. His fin Andrey Tarkovsky (1932-1986) is one of the eminent film makers of the 20th century.

Evading censorship and mounting pressure by Soviet authorities, he did not return to the Soviet Union after completing Nostalghia in Tuscany in 1983. His final film, The Sacrifice, was shot in Sweden in 1985. Compiled and edited by Tarkovsky's son Andrey Jr., film historian and critic Hans-Joachim Schlegel, and Lothar Schirmer, our book pays homage to a great visionary who though in poetic and, at times, disturbing images of near-biblical intensity. It features stills and documentary photos from each of his films, a rich selection of Tarkovsky's own writings, private photographs from the family album, as well as Polaroids from Russia and Italy. A compilation of prominent voices who have commented on Tarkovsky's work and personality-including Jean-Paul Sartre, Ingmar Bergman, and Aleksandr Sokurov-rounds out the volume.

    disappointing quality to the images (which are just stills from his films) - not sure what the source was but is nowhere near good enough. Polaroids are a smaller selection of those already printed in Instant Light, and there is nothing in the text that is not already elsewhere in other books. So I would suggest looking elsewhere for your Tarkovsky fix (like Instant Light Tarkovsky Polaroids or his diaries) disappointing quality to the images (which are just stills from his films) - not sure what the source was but is nowhere near good enough.

    Well, to be honest with you, this book doesn't have much value as a work of literature but it is sure interesting for fans of A. Tarkovsky such as myself. ''Ivan's childhood'' left a big effect on me and his other films are also amazing, like poetry on the screen. This books talks about his films, shows photos from the movies and shares some thoughts of the director himself, also praises by others. If you're a film buff or a Tarkovsky fan - this will interest you greatly, otherwise - probably no Well, to be honest with you, this book doesn't have much value as a work of literature but it is sure interesting for fans of A.

    Such a strange man Mr. Tarkovsky. This book brings out so many of the apparent contradictions or complications, whatever you want to call them. Any road, this also documents that he was capable of creating truly stunning cinema - I don't always like his work but I am always impressed. Such a strange man Mr. Tarkovsky.
