Den geniale russiske filmskabers liv og værk, fortalt af ham selv gennem genfundne optagelser og fænomenale klip.

En fugl, der letter fra en døende mands håndflade. En mystisk zone i et radioaktivt landskab. Middelalderlige kalkmalerier på filmlærredets kanvas. Andrej Tarkovskij efterlod sig otte film og sine tanker om, hvordan de blev til. Geniets liv og kunst er flettet sammen i (selv)portrættet ‘A Cinema Prayer’, instrueret af hans egen søn, hvor Tarkovskij udelukkende med sin egen stemme gennemgår sit enestående livsværk, til en montage af sjældne og usete optagelser. Blandt de mageløse øjeblikke er blandt andet klip i farver fra indspilningen af ‘Andrej Rubljev’.

The brilliant Russian filmmaker’s life and work, told by himself through uncovered recordings and phenomenal footage.

A bird flying away from the palm of a dying man. A mysterious zone in a radioactive landscape. Medieval frescoes on the canvas of a film screen. Andrey Tarkovsky left behind eight films as well as his thoughts about how they came into being. The life and art of the genius are woven together in the (self)portrait ‘A Cinema Prayer’, directed by his own son, where Tarkovsky with nothing but his own voice examines his unique opus, against a montage of rare and unseen footage. The incredible moments include colour footage from the shoot of ‘Andrey Rublev’. The Russian filmmaker has finally been given the film he has deserved.
