Figures Outside a Dacha, with Sunrise

In Andrei Tarkovsky's 1983 film Nostalghia, three women, a young boy, a dog, and a white horse are seen outside a Russian farmhouse. The camera pans past them and across the landscape, and these figure reappear in different locations as the camera moves. The simple camera trick, with the characters running behind the camera as it moves so they can reappear somewhere else without an edit, assumes a magical or metaphysical dimension in Tarkovsky's hands.

Duration: 12 Minutes

Instrumentation: Piano Solo
