Quotes

Kirill: [admiring one of Feofan's icon paintings] As Epiphanius said in "The Life of Saint Sergeius," "Simplicity, without gaudiness." That is what this is. It's sacred... Simplicity, without gaudiness - you can't say it better.
Feofan Grek: I see you are a wise man.
Kirill: If so, is that a good thing? If one is ignorant, isn't it better to be guided by one's heart?
Feofan Grek: In much wisdom there is much grief. And he who increases knowledge increases sorrow.

A masterpiece.
15 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

One of the finest films ever made. Films like this are what give the medium its purpose. It is rich, beautifully shot and acted, and extraordinarily powerful. Like all great works of art, it requires many viewings and much thought to discover the various layers of intellectual and aesthetic meaning within it. That is why a simple description of the plot would give the prospective viewer little idea of what the movie is actually about. True, it is the tale of Russia's greatest icon painter. But it is also a rumination on art, the artist, relgion, love, culture, conformity, cruelty, and much more. See it and discuss it with some bright friends.
