Words cant describe my disapointment. After countless deleys, which lasted almost a year, i finally recived the box set and there is nothing deluxe about it.
Andrey Rublyov: The picture quality is superb but that still doesn't excuse the fact that the film is 10 min shorter then the previous AE release and 30 min shorter then the criterion directors cut.
Nostalgia: Again the picture quality is superb but the sound problems that plagued the first release are still there.
The Sacrifice: The picture format problem is still there.
As for the rest of the box set, i cant say that i noticed any diffrence in the picture and sound quality between the old and the new AE dvds.
The only extra is the 90 min documentary Meeting Andrei Tarkovsky, which is a shame because, the old releases were jam packed with feature length documentaries, cast and crew interviews, ...
It brakes my heart to have to give a one star review to seven masterworks by the imortal Andrei Arsenyevich Tarkovsky, but i think he deserves better.
