Andrei Tarkovsky's Nostalghia @ The Siskel Center

NOSTALGHIA1983, Andrei Tarkovsky, Italy/USSR, 120 min.With Oleg Yankovsky, Erland Josephson

“Extraordinary...NOSTALGHIA is not so much a movie as a place to inhabit for two hours.”
—J. Hoberman, Village Voice

“One of cinema’s great endings, a wrenching, rapturous scene.”
—Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice (2013)

Tarkovsky’s hardest-to-see film in recent years (and inadequately transferred to DVD), NOSTALGHIA is also perhaps his most sheerly beautiful, which makes this revival in a new 35mm print all the more notable.  This was Tarkovsky’s first film made outside of Russia, and the story is filled with deeply personal associations of exile and longing: a Russian musicologist named Andrei leaves his homeland for Italy to research the life of an expatriate Russian composer who died in exile (as Tarkovsky would in 1986).  Andrei is pursued by his beautiful Italian interpreter (Domiziana Giordano) and encounters a mad prophet/doppelganger (Josephson) who inspires him to attempt a final act of faith.  In Italian and Russian with English subtitles.  35mm.  (MR)
