'Nostalghia' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Mon Nov 4, 2013 at 08:00 AM PST by

The 1983 film from acclaimed director Andrei Tarkovsky is headed for Blu-ray in January.

In an early announcement to retailers, Kino is preparing 'Nostalghia' for Blu-ray on January 21.

The Russian poet Andrei Gorchakov, accompanied by guide and translator Eugenia, is traveling through Italy researching the life of an 18th-century Russian composer. In an ancient spa town, he meets the lunatic Domenico, who years earlier had imprisoned his own family in his house for seven years to save them from the evils of the world. Seeing some deep truth in Domenico's act, Andrei becomes drawn to him. In a series of dreams, the poet's nostalgia for his homeland and his longing for his wife, his ambivalent feelings for Eugenia and her Italy, and his sense of kinship with Domenico become intertwined.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.95.
