    Tarkovski's work is incredible in so many ways. A unique mix between ultra realist and ultra symbolist. Every framing is a piece of art. In one shot, the camera can give more than three points of view of the same scene. Tarkovski leads the viewer to where he wants him to be. No need to rush, the movie lives for itself. Yes, there are some similiar themes through all Tarkovski films but that's normal. He is one individual with his interests, passions and fascinations. He uses the cinema as a medium to explore them. That's what art is all about. The scene where spoiler will haunt me forever. The faith, the homeland, the mother, I feel as if this movie is a very personnal and intimate one to Tarkovski. 6 years 3 months ago

    "Mr. Tarkovsky, whose earlier films include ''Andrei Rublev,'' ''Solaris'' and ''Stalker,'' may well be a film poet, but he's a film poet with a tiny vocabulary. The same eventually boring images keep recurring in film after film - shots of damp landscapes, marshes, hills in fog, and abandoned buildings with roofs that leak."
