"Miracle of Tarkovsky"? Historically, artistically? "Tarkovsky's Phenomena"? "He is a genius,' said Sereyozha K. -- it was so obvious even in the sixties. To him and whose who understand KINO. I didn't see it. Vijda, yes, "Ashes and Diamond" -- that was something which change me, my schoolboy's Soviet heart. Maybe because he was Russian -- maybe because I was Russian -- although, "My Name is Ivan" was enough to tell who Tarkovsky was.

Miracle that he made his films in USSR.

Who else should I call it?

Miracle that there was still Russia in the world of the Soviets.


Hopelessness (today) is the result of the Hope that ruled the sixties. Not just in Moscow, but there it was so needed. More than in Paris?

I do not know, I was in Moscow.

mise-en-scene (new)

[wikipedia] "Tarkovsky's films are characterised by Christian and metaphysical themes, extremely long takes, and memorable images of exceptional beauty. Recurring motifs in his films are dreams, memory, childhood, running water accompanied by fire, rain indoors, reflections, levitation, and characters re-appearing in the foreground of long panning movements of the camera.

Tarkovsky developed a theory of cinema that he called "sculpting in time". By this he meant that the unique characteristic of cinema as a medium was to take our experience of time and alter it. Unedited movie footage transcribes time in real time. (The speedy jump-cutting style that is prevalent in music videos and many Hollywood movies today (2007), by contrast, overrides any sense of time by imposing the editor's viewpoint.) By using long takes and few cuts in his films, he aimed to give the viewers a sense of time passing, time lost, and the relationship of one moment in time to another.

Up to and including his film Mirror, Tarkovsky focused his cinematic works on exploring this theory. After Mirror, he announced that he would focus his work on exploring the dramatic unities proposed by Aristotle: a concentrated action, happening in one place, within the span of a single day. Stalker is, by his own account, the only film that truly reflects this ambition;[citation needed] it is also considered by many to be a near-perfect reflection of the sculpting in time theory."


I don't know if I will teach film classes again -- this and other Russia-related pages are to serve as references to my nonfiction projects: Father-Russia, Century of Antohins, Winter Fool, KINO..

When I defected in 1980, I didn't know that Tarkovsky will be forced to do the same a few years later. I didn't because I thought about his fate and my fate in USSR. I wanted to have my chance. I came too later, "they" already knew what trouble can come from this place -- VGIK.

Now I have to write about what went wrong. With me, of course.

... Will I write it? Before I knew it, "before" was many moons back.

Last film (Sweden) :

[left] LE SACRIFICE (1 min.)
The Sacrifice, 1986
Shot by Sven Nykvist, Bergman's cinematographer, Tarkovsky's last film is perhaps his most beautiful. Filmed while Tarkovsky was already in the throes of cancer (yet before the final diagnosis), Sacrifice appears as a last will and testament. It is the story of Alexander, his loving relationship with his son, and the strain he feels with the rest of his family in Sweden. A nuclear war has been announced, and Alexander prays that if God would make everything as it was before, he would give up his family and possessions and never utter another word. The audience is never certain if the events that transpire are real or a dream, but Alexander fulfills his vow in a remarkable closing sequence.
Length: 149 mins. Color, with long segments of near-black & white.
