Andrey Rublev

15 yrs 175 minutes 1966 8.1

15th century Russia was heavily marked by internal strife, poverty, and cruelty. Through various episodes we see the life of icon painter and monk Andrei Rublev, as he travels through the ravaged country in search of answers to the big questions and his own existence. The film was forced through extensive censorship when it was first shown in the Soviet Union in the 1960s and could only be shown to a wider audience after several edits. In 1969, the film was praised in Cannes and has since appeared regularly on lists of the best films in cinematic history.
