Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky, one of cinemas greatest masters was born on 04.04.1932.
Sadly the he passed away in 1986, but his films live on as some of the most extraordinary ever created.
As Ingmar Bergman said: “Tarkovsky for me is the greatest [director], the one who invented a new language, true to the nature of film, as it captures life as a reflection, life as a dream.”
As a tribute to the poetic genius of Tarkovsky’s work I have compiled a few images from his films here, the beauty of these still images only hint at the greatness of his films.
