Poetic documentary about prominent Russian poet Arseny Tarkovsky, father of director Andrei Tarkovsky.
Day and Hour
'Chorus of Slaves' by Verdi is heard in the background of DAY AND HOUR, a documentary about a small provincial town and its people; about their expectations, anxieties and grief at life's invariability and hopelessness. In the theatre the projector spins its reel of VIVEMENT DIMANCHE to an empty auditorium. In the background we see the town in darkness.
