1983. Italy/Soviet Union. Dir: Andrei Tarkovsky. With Oleg Yankovskiy. 125 min.
A Russian poet, displaced in the misty Italian countryside and haunted by ghostly dreams of home, bonds with a madman who claims to know how to find fulfillment. Tarkovsky’s first film made in exile tells a story of poetic visual details, meticulous compositions, and affecting prose in the place of plot points.
