Gleaming new print of Tarkovsky's debut feature, now looking more impressive than ever. The narrative revolves around a teenage WW2 spy, travelling through the country behind enemy lines. Characteristically breathtaking imagery and an aching sense of spirituality springs naturally from this simple drama of childhood. It is all a far cry from the grandiose and metaphysical reach of this great filmmaker's later work. Essential viewing.
