Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

With his second feature, a towering epic that took him years tocomplete, Andrei Tarkovsky waded deep into the past and emerged with avisionary masterwork. Threading together several self-containedepisodes, the filmmaker traces the renowned icon painter Andrei Rublevthrough the harsh realities of fifteenth-century Russian life, vividlyconjuring the dark and otherworldly atmosphere of the age: a primitivehot-air balloon takes to the sky, snow falls inside an unfinishedchurch, naked pagans celebrate the midsummer solstice, a young manoversees the casting of a gigantic bell. Appearing here in Tarkovsky'spreferred 183-minute cut, as well as the version that was originallycensored by Soviet authorities, Andrei Rublev is an arrestingmeditation on art, faith, and endurance, and a powerful reflection onexpressive constraints in the director's own time.

Trivia

  • For the scene where the cow is on fire, it was covered in an asbestos coat that protected it from actually being burned. But for the scene where the horse falls down the stairs, it was shot in the neck by director Andrei Tarkovsky. The crew acquired the horse from a slaughterhouse where it was going to be shot the next day.

Quotes

    • Kirill: Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth and the thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth. Walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes but know that for all these God will bring thee into judgment. Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth before the difficult days come and the years draw nigh when thou shalt say "I have no pleasure in them." Remember thy creator before the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken or the pitcher shattered at the fountain or the wheel broken at the well. Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. "Vanity of vanities," saith the preacher; "All is vanity."
