Andrei Tarkovsky Nostalgia Opening

Posted : admin On 8/22/2021

Nostalghia (UK: Nostalgia) is a 1983 Soviet-Italian drama film directed by Andrei Tarkovsky and starring Oleg Yankovsky, Domiziana Giordano, and Erland Josephson. Tarkovsky co-wrote the screenplay with Tonino Guerra. Nostalghia is Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky's enigmatic work about a writer (Oleg Yankovsky) who, trapped by his fame and an unhappy marriage, seeks out his cultural past in Italy.

Speak Italian

We've arrived. I stopped here

so we couldstretch our legs

The themes running throughout the film now begin thoroughly merging into even more profoundly moving and vivid expressions of Tarkovsky’s nostalgia and deeply spiritual nature. Andrei falls into a dream state, longingly recalling his wife at home in Russia, as she suddenly awakens there and speaks to him.

  • In 1996 the Andrei Tarkovsky Museum opened in Yuryevets, his childhood town. A minor planet, 3345 Tarkovskij, discovered by Soviet astronomer Lyudmila Georgievna Karachkina in 1982, has also been named after him. Tarkovsky has been the subject of several documentaries.
  • Tarkovsky found the pressure exerted by the state on his ability to create so taxing that after going to Italy to shoot a film, he never returned. He claimed that Russians are fatally attached to their roots, and Nostalgia (1983) echoed his predicament. In it, Russian writer Andrei travels to Italy to research a compatriot 18th-century composer.

It's a marvelous painting

I cried the first time I saw it

This lightreminds me

of the autumn in Moscow

Come on.

-I don't want to

I'll wait for you inside.

-I don't want to!

'I'm tired of seeing these

sickeningly beautiful sights'

'I want nothing more

just for myself'

'That's enough'

Have you come to pray for a

baby too? Or to be spared them?

I'm just looking

If there are any casual onlookers

who aren't supplicants

then nothing happens

What is supposed to happen?

Whatever you like,

whatever you need most

But you should at leastkneel down

I can't.

-They're used to it

They're used to it

They have faith.


Can I ask you something?

Why do you think

it's only the women

who pray so much?

You're asking me?

You see so many women here

I'm only the sacristan

But you must wonder why

women are more devout than men

You should know

Because you're a woman?

No, I've never understood

these things

I'm a simple man

But I think

a woman is meant to have children

to raise them

with patience

and self-sacrifice

That's all she's meant for?

I don't know.

-Thank you

You've been a great help

You asked what I thought

You want to be happy

There are more important things

What are you reading?

Arseni Tarkovsky's poems

In Russian?

It's a translation

Quite a good one

Poetry is untranslatable,

You may be right that poetry

But music?

What is it?

Oriental music

But how could we have got to know

Tolstoy, Pushkin

None of you understand Russia

Nor you Italy then

It's impossible for us poor devils

How can we get to know each other?
