Intoxicated by Tarkovski
21 January 2002 | by marcosmarinoSee all my reviews

When watching this movie with a friend, we couldn't believe the overwhelming influence of Tarkovski. Unfortunately, this prevents the emergence of any deep originality in the film. However, photography is excellent and some images (especially the erotic ones)are interesting.
