Nostalghia by Andreï Arsenievitch Tarkovski( Visual )

42 editions published between 1983 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nostalghia is Andrei Tarkovsky's brooding late masterpiece, a darkly poetic vision of exile. It was the first of his features to be made outside of Russia, the home to which he would never return. Tarkovsky explained that in Russian the word "nostalghia" conveys "the love for your homeland and the melancholy that arises from being far away." This debilitating form of homesickness is embodied in the film by Andrei (Oleg Yankovsky, The Mirror), a Russian intellectual doing research in Italy. He becomes obsessed with the Botticelli-like beauty of his translator Eugenia (Domiziana Giordano), as well as with the apocalyptic ramblings of a self-destructive wanderer named Domenico (Erland Josephson, The Sacrifice). Written with frequent Michelangelo Antonioni collaborator Tonino Guerra (L'Avventura), NOSTALGHIA is a mystical and mysterious collision of East and West, shot with the tactile beauty that only Tarkovsky can provide. As J. Hoberman wrote, "NOSTALGHIA is not so much a movie as a place to inhabit for two hours."
Prospero's books : an adaptation of The Tempest by William Shakespeare( Visual )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Prospero, once the Duke of Milan, now reigns over a faraway island, living there with his only daughter, Miranda. Twelve years earlier Prospero's brother, in league with the King of Naples, had exiled Prospero and his daughter from their home. One evening, Prospero imagines creating a storm powerful enough to bring his old enemies to his island. He begins to write a play about this tempest, speaking aloud the lines of each of his characters. It is the story of Prospero's past, and his revenge."--Title screens. As adapted by Peter Greenaway, the film envisions a magical realm of exquisite beauty, where the innocence of love and dreams of revenge collide to create a tempest. Greenaway structures the film around the 24 books Prospero took into exile, and while remaining faithful to the text, the treatment and delivery of that text could hardly be more different

Spielräume : Notizen während einer Tournee mit Peter Brooks Inszenierung des Kirschgarten vom 24.2.1989-15.5.1989 by Erland Josephson( Book )

6 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in German and Swedish and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rollen är Erland Josephsons anteckningar från några intensiva månader då han turnerade i Sovjet och Japan med engelsmannen Peter Brooks uppmärksammade uppsättning av Tjechovs Körsbärsträdgården. På scener i Moskva, Tbilisi, Leningrad och Tokyo spelar han sin roll som Gajev, och varje dag skriver han ned tankar, minnesbilder och händelser som tillsammans bilder en självbiografisk fresk, präglad av skarpsyn, humor, ömsinthet och självironi. Han berättar också om sina år som Dramatenchef, om sin vänskap med Ingmar Bergman, Liv Ullman, Andrej Tarkovskij, och om sitt samarbete med Alf Sjöberg, Peter Brook, Liliana Cavani och mång andra. Mycket handlar boken också om tvivel, utanförskap, hemlängtan och ensamhet. Men framför allt är den en hyllning till arbetsglädjen och ett mycket rikt skådespelarliv. [Publit]
