Here is Tarkovsky’s first feature made outside of Russia, the home to which he would never return. He explained that in Russian the word “nostalghia” conveys “the love for your homeland and the melancholy that arises from being far away.” This homesickness is embodied by Andrei (Oleg Yankovsky), a Russian intellectual doing research in Italy. He becomes obsessed with the beauty of his translator (Domiziana Giordano), as well as with the apocalyptic ramblings of a wanderer (Erland Josephson).

In Italian and Russian w/English subtitles.
