Concise, but objectively portrayed biography of a great Russian film director.

Based on literary and visual documents recently published in Russia and author's long-term research on Russian cinema and culture,this book presents little known facts and aspects of Tarkovsky's life and his creation.

Reading this book you can follow, how social, cultural and political situations in the Soviet Union from the 1930s to 1980s had influenced on him, how his belief in Film Art had been formed and what kind of difficulties he had to face in making films and so on. Here is a life of not only a cinematographic genius, but also of a flesh and blood human, who didn't fear his Destiny.

This is an English supplemented and Revised edition of the same title published in Japanese on April 4, 2011. The Japanese first edition was selected by Association of Libraries in Japan as one of the books appropriate for archive in public libraries.
