The Moscow Elegy (1987)
A film in homage to Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky. It concentrates on his absence from the Soviet Union and what he left behind. There are episodes of his funeral and places he lived in Moscow.

… This film’s purpose is not to provide biographical information, nor to provide insight into Tarkovsky’s working process or legacy. ‘Moscow Elegy’ manipulates a great deal of footage from other Tarkovsky documentaries, notably ‘One Day in the Life of Andrei Arsenevich’ and ‘Tempo di Viaggio.’ Rather, ‘Moscow Elegy’ should be seen as an artistic meditation on what it means to live, to die, and to leave one’s traces in artistic works. In this regard, the film is largely successful. It is, perhaps, most affecting when seen AFTER the Tarkovsky’s oeuvre and documentaries.
–––––––––––––––––––––––––-
a documentary with Tarkovsky. but not about him. because it has not exactly the role of testimony or homage. in fact, it is a form of synthesis of his movies, a last declaration, frame of an universe in which the hope, the love and search of essence for the profound need of happiness is explored with great delicacy, force and precision. a film who not remember the figure/personality of Tarkovsky but his ideal as the way for his public self definition. a seed of reflection, joy and spiritual light. who can be perfect tool for discover a manner to use the truth and beauty as ladder to escape from a gray circle of each day.
