Review:

This film by legendary Russian director Andrey Tarkovskiy (of Solaris fame) treats the subject of living under the fear of nuclear anihilation (this was 1986, remember) with dread and heart.

This poetic movie is filled with dreamy breath taking images. Be warned, this is one of the slowest moving pictures I have ever seen. Not for all tastes, but I loved it.
