A movie of great evocative power. It is an almost metaphysical quest, these three men's path in a no-man's-land which looks like Tchernobil. The movie like Tarkovsky's work is marked by deep spiritual Orthodoxy and a kind of pantheism naturalistic, a kind of antidote to the materialistic delusions of the Soviet regime that eventually led him to the exile.
The images are of great beauty and the film looks almost like a painting. Great picture.
