Andrei Rublev

Andrei Tarkovsky is one of the film directors I really appreciate. I managed to see only a part of his films and the one that stirred my thoughts the most was
“Andrei Rublev” from 1966. A very special artistic film in which the protagonist faces various powerful events in his life, also reflecting to faith, to the state
of one's soul, and much more.


Andrei Rublev, is a renowned film that explores various themes, including mysticism and spirituality. Tarkovsky's approach to mysticism in this film is deeply contemplative and symbolic, inviting viewers to reflect on the nature of art, faith, and the human condition.

The main character is set in medieval Russia during a tumultuous period marked by political strife and the Tartar invasion. The film revolves around the life and struggles of Andrei Rublev, a historical figure and renowned Russian icon painter. Through Rublev's journey, Tarkovsky delves into the realm of mysticism, offering
a meditative exploration of faith, creativity, and the transcendent power of art.

One of the key elements of Tarkovsky's approach to mysticism in the film is the use of long takes and slow pacing. These techniques create a sense
of contemplation and invite viewers to immerse themselves in the visual and auditory details of each scene. Tarkovsky often incorporates natural elements, such as water, fire, and the wind, which carry symbolic significance and evoke
a sense of the mystical and transcendental.

Tarkovsky explores the complex relationship between faith and suffering. The characters in the film grapple with the harsh realities of their time, questioning their faith in the face of violence, oppression, and personal hardships. The director presents the idea that true spirituality is often forged through suffering and that faith can be a source of strength and resilience in times of adversity.

Personally, I find myself a lot in this character. I thought it was worth making
a poster, as a tribute, for such a special film production.
