Immediately suppressed by the Soviets in 1966, Andrei Tarkovsky's epic masterpiece is a
sweeping medieval tale of Russia's greatest icon painter. Too experimental, too frightening,
too violent, and too politically complicated to be released officially, Andrei Rublev
existed only in shortened, censored versions until the Criterion Collection created
this complete 205-minute director's cut special edition, now available for the first time on DVD.
