With luscious film stills and superb essays by the director and his admirers, this is the essential Tarkovsky compendium
Between 1962 and 1986, Andrey Tarkovsky (1932–86) directed seven feature-length films, all acclaimed as masterpieces of cinema: Ivan’s Childhood, Andrei Rublev, Solaris, Mirror, Stalker, Nostalgia and Sacrifice. Evading censorship and mounting pressure by Soviet authorities, Tarkovsky decided not to return to the Soviet Union after completing Nostalgia in Tuscany, three years before his death; his final film, Sacrifice, was shot in Sweden in 1985.
This new smaller-format edition of a 2012 publication was compiled and edited by Tarkovsky's son Andrey Jr., along with film historian and critic Hans-Joachim Schlegel and Lothar Schirmer. Beautifully designed and printed, Andrey Tarkovsky: Life and Work pays homage to a great visionary who produced poetic and sometimes disturbing images of near biblical intensity through his films. Featuring stills from each of his films, a selection of his influential writings, private photographs from the family album, as well as Polaroids from Russia and Italy, it is buttressed with comments from prominent voices who have commented on Tarkovsky's work and personality, including Jean-Paul Sartre, Ingmar Bergman and Aleksandr Sokurov.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Bookforum

Howard Hampton

Andrey Tarkovsky: Life and Work succeeds in compressing the late Russian director's monumental legacy into portable form-a slender volume a pilgrim could easily slip into a backpack. The book succeeds in dis­tilling Tarkovsky's sound-and-visionary, contrarian essence with an approach that is at once capacious and compact: It's more imagistic gospel than cata­logue, more consecrated poetry than academic contextualization.

'Andrey Tarkovsky: Life and Work' pays homage to a Russian visionary of near biblical intensity

"My discovery of Tarkovsky's first film was like a miracle. Suddenly, I found myself standing at the door of a room the keys of which had, until then, never been given to me. It was a room I had always wanted to enter and where he was moving freely and fully at ease. I felt encouraged and stimulated: someone was expressing what I had always wanted to say without knowing how. Tarkovsky is for me the greatest, the one who invented a new language, true to the nature of film, as it captures life as a reflection, life as a dream." So wrote Ingmar Bergman of the great Russian experimental filmmaker in 1986, as excerpted in this new, small-format edition of Life and Work, the classic homage compiled and edited by Tarkovsky's son, Andrey Jr..
