Andrei Tarkovsky's brooding late masterpiece, a darkly poetic vision of exile. It was the first of his features to be made outside of Russia, the home to which he would never return. Tarkovsky explained that in Russian the word 'nostalghia' conveys 'the love for your homeland and the melancholy that arises from being far away.'
Kino Classics Releases
on Blu-ray and DVD in new HD transfer from archival 35mm film elements
Available on Blu-ray and DVD on January 21st
NEW YORK, NY - December 19, 2013 - Kino Classics is proud to announce the Blu-ray and DVD release of Andrei Tarkovsky's Nostalghia (1983) in a new HD transfer from archival 35mm film elements. One of the final films by its celebrated director, Tarkovsky was nominated for the Palme d'Or, and won Best Director, FIPRESCI Prize, and Prize of the Ecumenical Jury at the Cannes Film Festival in 1983 for Nostalghia.
Nostalghia is currently in repertory release from Kino Lorber, which began with a run at one theater in NYC (Brooklyn Academy of Music) in May that grossed $20,000. It has played in 15 markets to date with more to come in 2014.
The film comes to Blu-ray and DVD on January 21, 2014, with a SRP of $34.95 for the Blu-ray and $29.95 for the DVD. Special features include optional English subtitles and the theatrical trailer.
One of the most highly-regarded directors of the past 50 years, Andrei Tarkovsky (1932-1986) produced a towering body of films (Andrei Rublev, Solaris, and The Sacrifice among them) that continue to be highly acclaimed by critics and filmmakers alike. Of Tarkovsky, Ingmar Bergman said: "Tarkovsky is for me the greatest, the one who invented a new language, true to the nature of film." Kino Classics is pleased to bring Nostalghia, one of his final masterworks, to Blu-ray and DVD in this new HD transfer which marks the film's Blu-ray debut.
Nostalghia is Andrei Tarkovsky's brooding late masterpiece, a darkly poetic vision of exile. It was the first of his features to be made outside of Russia, the home to which he would never return. Tarkovsky explained that in Russian the word "nostalghia" conveys "the love for your homeland and the melancholy that arises from being far away."
This debilitating form of homesickness is embodied in the film by Andrei (Oleg Yankovsky, The Mirror), a Russian intellectual doing research in Italy. He becomes obsessed with the Botticelli-like beauty of his translator Eugenia (Domiziana Giordano), as well as with the apocalyptic ramblings of a self-destructive wanderer named Domenico (Erland Josephson, The Sacrifice).
Written with frequent Michelangelo Antonioni collaborator Tonino Guerra (L'Avventura), Nostalghia is a mystical and mysterious collision of East and West, shot with the tactile beauty that only Tarkovsky can provide. As J. Hoberman wrote, "Nostalghia is not so much a movie as a place to inhabit for two hours."
