Powerful and relective work by Tarkovsky rather obliquley chronicling the artistic life of Andrei Rublev. Through the use of seven 'chapters' a feel for the time period is well captured with many memorable images and scenes. The jester, the pagan ritual, the casting of the bell, etc. Slow moving but very rewarding with exceptional images cast by Tarkovsky and dp Vadim Yusov. A true work of art.
