Juxtaposing a person with an environment that is boundless, collating him with a countless number of people passing by close to him and far away, relating a person to the whole world, that is the meaning of cinema - Andrei Tarkovsky. Andrei Tarkovsky is the most influential Soviet filmmaker of the post-war era, and one of the world's most renowned cinematic geniuses. He created spiritual, existential films of incredible beauty, repeatedly returning to themes of memory, dreams, childhood and Christianity. His films, such as Solaris, Mirror, Nostalghia and The Sacrifice make use of long, unedited shots and wide angles in uncompromisingly formalistic statements that are as striking today as they were when they were first made.

A compilation of prominent voices who have commented on Tarkovsky' s work and personality-including Jean-Paul Sartre, Ingmar Bergman, and Aleksandr Sokurov-rounds out the volume. His final film, The Sacrifice, was shot in Sweden in 1985. Compiled and edited by Tarkovsky' s son Andrey Jr. , film historian and critic Hans-Joachim Schlegel, and Lothar Schirmer, our book pays homage to a great visionary who though in poetic and, at times, disturbing images of near-biblical intensity.
