Anatoli Solonitsyn in Andrei Rublev

Andrei Rublev

1966 UR

This mesmerizing account of 15th century Russian monk Andrei Rublev follows the icon painter as he faces violence, political persecution and, eventually, a crisis of faith after leaving the monastery to paint Vladimir Cathedral's interior. The Soviets suppressed this sweeping epic -- widely recognized as a cinematic masterpiece -- and did not allow it to be seen as director Andrei Tarkovsky intended until more than 20 years after completion.
