Andrei Tarkovsky is unquestionably one of the greatest filmmakers that Russia, and indeed the world, has ever seen. Although he made just seven feature films - among them ‘Andrei Rublev’, ‘Solaris’ and ’The Sacrifice’ before his life was cut tragically short by cancer at the age of 54, each is an artistic master piece and a major landmark of world cinema. This exceptional body of work, characterised by metaphysical and spiritual explorations of the human condition and images of extraordinary beauty, is celebrated in this DVD with films by acclaimed directors Alexander Sokurov ( Moscow Ellergy / Moskovskaya elegiya ) , Chris Marker ( One Day in the Life of Andrei Arsenevich / Une journée d'Andrei Arsenevitch ), and by Tarkovsky himself and Tonino Guerra ( Tempo di Viaggio / Tempo di viaggio ).
