The movie is notable for its troubled production and numerous issues with the Soviet Union's strict censorship board. It is Tarkovsky's longest and most violent film, and was only available in heavily cut versions until the CriterionCollection DVD release in 1999, which restored the film to its original 205 minute run time.

As with most Tarkovsky films, it eschews a traditional narrative structure, relying on episodic vignettes that take place around the life of Rublev, with the man himself often taking a backseat to the actions on screen depicting the time. Interestingly, the film never once [[InformedAbility depicts Andrei Rublev painting]], and is entirely in black and white until an ending montage of Rublev's work in blazing color. It is [[TrueArtIsAngsty quite depressing]], but also considered to be a shining example of one of the 20th century's greatest creative minds at the height of his power.

* RapePillageAndBurn: While on the way to Moscow, a horde of Mongol-Tatars decide to prey on the undefended town of Vladimir. Men are cut down and shot with arrows, thatched roofs are set aflame, women of all ages are raped; general pandemonium ensues. The majority of the townfolk barricade themselves in the town's cathedral. What makes it so heinous is that they are being guided by a pretender to the Moscovian throne and many Russians are among their ranks.

''AndreiRublev'' (or ''"The Passion According to Andrei"'') is a 1966 film by Creator/AndreiTarkovsky, loosely based on the life of Russia's famous icon painter of the same name. It is the movie that launched the director to international attention after its warm reception at the Cannes film festival.
