by Andrei Tarkovsky
A haunting, enigmatic film directed by the late, great Andrei Tarkovsky, his first made outside of the Soviet Union. It is a portrait of a misanthropic poet, Gorchakov, an expatriate in Italy who is researching the life of an exiled Russian composer who committed suicide. Gorchakov finds himself crippled by a melancholy nostalgia for his Russian homeland and memories of his wife and children. Nostalghia won the International Critics Prize at the 1983 Cannes Film Festival. (1983, 125 min, 35mm)
