It’s tough to recall much of any sort of arc to this one. I don’t think it has one and that is fine. I saw it recently, but it took my maybe 4 tries to get through it. Definitely not my favorite of Tarkovsky’s work (that would Stalker or Solaris) even if it is supposed to be his most personal I think. I recall scenes from it and images and maybe that’s the point. A burning house, a small child, massive green meadows, a man with a briefcase, poems, scenes at a newspaper,…but they do not connect to much with me.
