Nostalghia

Andrei Tarkovsky explained that in Russian the word “nostalghia” conveys “the love for your homeland and the melancholy that arises from being far away.”

This debilitating form of homesickness is embodied in the film by Andrei, a Russian intellectual doing research in Italy. He becomes obsessed with the Botticelli-like beauty of his translator, Eugenia, as well as with the apocalyptic ramblings of a self-destructive wanderer named Domenico.

Written with frequent Michelangelo Antonioni collaborator Tonino Guerra (L’Avventura) and newly restored in 4K from the original camera negative, Nostalghia is a mystical and mysterious collision of East and West, shot with the tactile beauty that only Tarkovsky can provide.

“Tarkovsky is for me the greatest, the one who invented a new language.”
Ingmar Bergman
"If Nostalghia is not Tarkovsky’s most personal film, it is arguably his most self-reflexive."
J. Hoberman, The New York Times
