"[A] fascinating and intelligent portrait." - Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

Filmmaker Michal Leszcylowski was editor for Andrei Tarkovsky's last film, THE SACRIFICE. During the time they spent together, their relationship grew into an enduring friendship. DIRECTED BY ANDREI TARKOVSKY is an homage, a fluid and captivating documentary that presents the brooding as well as the more playful side of a genius.

Really a making-of The Sacrifice, plus a very sincere and well executed epitaph for the director. It really is worth watching it right after The Sacrifice. Nicely done, and tons of real knowledge weaved in.

The film is reverent in its depiction of a great artist. Directed by Andrei Tarkovsky is an intimate glimpse in time, with a sculptor obsessed by its power.
