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 has 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.

  • The definitive 205-minute director's cut
  • New English subtitles translating 40% more dialogue
  • Screen-specific audio essay by Harvard film professor Vlada Petric
  • Rare film interviews with Andrei Tarkovsky, with an essay on the filmmaker's work by Professor Petric
  • A timeline featuring key events in Russian history, plus the lives and works of Andrei Rublev and Andrei Tarkovsky
