One of world’s most visionary, celebrated and inﬂuential ﬁlmmakers, Andrei Tarkovsky made just seven features before his tragically early death at the age of 54.
Characterised by metaphysical and spiritual explorations of the human condition, each ﬁlm is an artistic masterpiece of extraordinary visual beauty and stands as an enduring classic of world cinema.
Tarkovsky's extraordinarily accomplished debut feature is a powerful and moving tale of a 12 year-old boy who vows to avenge his family’s death at the hands of the Nazis.
