Details

A bundle of Andrei Tarkovsky feature films, including:

Ivan's Childhood
Andrei Tarkovsky's debut feature is an extraordinarily moving and powerful story of war and revenge. Determined to avenge his family's death at the hands of the Nazis, 12 year-old Ivan joins a Russian partisan regiment as a scout, where he becomes indispensable for his ability to slip unnoticed behind enemy lines. But, as his missions become increasingly dangerous, it is decided that he must be removed from the front line. Ivan resists and convinces his commanding officers to allow him to carry out one last expedition.

Andrei Rublev
Andrei Tarkovsky's acclaimed epic about the life of 15th century icon painter Andrei Rublev. Rublev (Anatoli Solonitsyn) lives in a world consumed by feudal violence and human degradation, and the turmoil he sees all about him makes him lose the will to speak. After many years of silent travelling around medieval Russia, he meets a young boy who has taken charge of the construction of a large silver bell, and in him discovers the inspiration to speak again. 

Solaris
On a space station orbiting the ocean-covered planet Solaris, cosmonaut Kris Kelvin arrives to investigate a series of mysterious and bizarre occurrences among the crew. What he discovers are supernatural phenomena that cause repressed and haunting memories to take on physical form, including that of Kelvin's late wife. Through her, Kelvin attempts to communicate with the forces responsible which appear to be emanating from the mysterious planet itself.

Mirror
'Mirror' is the celebrated Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky's most autobiographical work in which he reflects upon his own childhood and the destiny of the Russian people. The film's many layers intertwine real life and family relationships - Tarkovsky's father, the poet Arseny Tarkovsky, reads his own poems on the soundtrack and Tarkovsky's mother appears as herself - with memories of childhood, dreams and nightmares. From the opening sequence of a boy being cured of a stammer by hypnotism, to scene in a printing works which encapsulates the Stalinist era, "Mirror" has an extraordinary resonance and repays countless viewings.

Stalker
Deep within the Zone, a bleak and devastated forbidden landscape, lies a mysterious room with the power to grant the deepest wishes of those strong enough to make the hazardous journey there. Desperate to reach it, a scientist and a writer approach the Stalker, one of the few able to navigate the Zone's menacing terrain, and begin a dangerous trek into the unknown. Tarkovsky's second foray into science fiction after Solaris is a surreal and disturbing vision of the future. Hauntingly exploring man's dreams and desires, and the consequences of realising them, Stalker , adapted from Arkady & Boris Sturgatsky's novel Roadside Picnic, has been described as one of the greatest science fiction films of all time.

Nostalgia
An enigmatic work, bathed in dream-like imagery and deep symbolism, about a writer, trapped by fame and an unhappy marriage, seeking out his cultural past. Winner of the Grand Prix de Creation and FIPRESCI prize at the 1984 Cannes Film Festival.

Sacrifice
In a typical visionary style, Tarkovsky's depiction of the dawn of WWII and its effects on an isolated family group is awash with breathtaking cinematography and resounds with a deep, mythical profundity. BAFTA Winner (Best Foreign Language Film 1988). Winner of 4 awards at the 1986 Cannes Film Festival.
