Renowned Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky delivers a piercing story of a writer who travels to Italy and is stricken with homesickness that paralyzes him from sleeping with his partner or progressing with work. Instead, he befriends a strange man determined to walk through mineral water with a lit candle in order to save the world. Besieged with daydreams of religious iconography and an ever-deteriorating social life, our writer must choose to take action. Tarkovsky’s brilliant examination of art, culture, and place is subtly transmitted through perhaps one of our most devastating human emotions: nostalgia. (Andrei Tarkovsky, Italy/USSR, 1983, 125m)

“… what begins the film immediately establishes the thought template that continues throughout; to better engage with the present we need to understand and let go of the past. The point at which our living memory no longer arrests our development enables nostalgia.” –PopMatters
