Synopsis

Andrei Tarkovsky's epic drama - taking the form of eight imaginary episodes as the artist Andrei Rublev travels through feudal Russia - is based on the life of the great 15th-century Russian painter. It was shelved for several years by the Soviet authorities who in 1967 thought it too 'dark' for the 50th anniversary of the October Revolution.
