Synopsis

The Russian poet Andrei Gorchakov travels through Italy accompanied by his guide and translator as he researches the life of an 18th Century Russian composer, Pavel Sosnovsky. There he meets Erland Josephson, a local pariah who declares that the world is coming to an end.

Our take

Andrei Tarkovsky is one of cinema’s great prophets, an artist whose images and revelations are singular in film history. Made while in exile from the USSR, Nostalghia is no exception: an often-overlooked masterwork, restored in HD. Winner of Best Director at Cannes—an honor he shared with Bresson!
