An expansive Russian drama, this film focuses on the life of revered religious icon painter Andrei Rublev. Drifting from place to place in a tumultuous era, the peace-seeking monk eventually gains a reputation for his art. But after Rublev witnesses a brutal battle and unintentionally becomes involved, he takes a vow of silence and spends time away from his work. As he begins to ease his troubled soul, he takes steps towards becoming a painter once again.

Although Tarkovsky often does slow, long shots in an engaging and often moving way, I personally felt this film dragged too long and was too disjointed to be very captivating. Some of the painting parts were really lovely, but overall, I didn't really connect with this film of his.
