This picture is brilliant and an absolute beauty to watch. Though it is very long, I think it is worth watching. A non-commercial epic in a sense. Tarkovsky makes sure that the picture is an expression. There are different chapters/stories that all come to together to complete this meaningful picture. There is beauty in the way there is balance in the different parts of the stories. It dosen’t make it too complicated or over throw the film. I love this picture.
