Trivia

The Andronikov Monastery was located in the Taganka region of Moscow and was built in 1360 on the eastern bank of the Yauza River as part of Moscow's outer defensive ring of monastery-fortresses. Its name is derived from that of its first abbot, Andronik. The monastery's most famous monk was Andrei Rublyov. See more »

Goofs

After Rublev comments that nothing is more terrible than snow falling in a temple, some of it lands on Durochka's hair and is clearly a white feather. See more »

Visual Poetry
25 August 2001 | by mnielsenimdbSee all my reviews

This is the most visually moving film I've seen. Until Rublev, I didn't truly understand how stunning and engaging a film could be. The vignettes of Russian life are very thought-provoking, the cinematography the best I've seen, and the result is a film that moves me every time I watch it. Approach it with an open mind, and be prepared for a slowly unfolding story. Do this, and you'll be deeply rewarded and satisfied in a way that few films will ever match.
