Explore the strange frontiers of director Andrei Tarkovsky

Nostalghia (1983)

Director Andrei Tarkovsky’s first film outside the Soviet Union was shot in Italy, where Russian writer Andrei Gorchakov (Oleg Yankovsky) has traveled to research an 18th-century composer.

Though the interpreter (Domiziana Giordano) accompanying him is quite charming, Andrei is stricken with homesickness, until he meets an eccentric (Erland Josephson), who challenges him to save the world.

This haunting, visually poetic film garnered several awards at Cannes (though Soviet authorities reportedly prevented it from winning the Palme d’Or).

125 minutes

In Italian and Russian with English subtitles.
