By Philip Hale VINE VOICE on 22 April 2010
This book is brilliant.

In case you didn't know already, the nature of Tarkovsky's diaries mean this isn't something you can read comprehensively. It's just the jottings and personal notes - literally a diary - of various things in his life. Of course, some of those things are boring and some of them regard the finest cinematography, err, ever?

I love that hit-and-miss nature of reading his thoughts. Sometimes I'll idly be flicking through shopping lists and drawings, slightly voyeuristically. Then you come across a frenzy of writing; you literally get a sense of the relative rarity of creative 'inspiration'.

If you liked his films, or simply fancy getting to know a truly honourable and stunning man, don't hesitate to purchase.

I don't often read journals but, as someone who likes to write, I think much can be gleaned form the thought processes of those creative individuals one would like to consider inspirations and perhaps emulate in some way.

These journals provide such incite and in doing so are a window on the wonderfully romantic and tortured soul of Andrey Tarkovski. At points I wanted to cry; ill health, soviet film councils, poverty, fire, all plaques that afflicted this amazing film maker who possessed a single minded vision of the films he strived against all possible adversity to create. Whether in the end his relatively limited output is improved by the above or whether his potential was never fully realised will never be known. He died of lung cancer shortly after creating his 7th film, like his favourite actor Tolya Solonitysn, despite quiting smoking years before.

His films are amazing and these diarys, while greatly flawed in their editorship, are a wonderful incite into the great mans mind and make excellent reading.

Very lousy edition. You are paying 40€ just for some xerox copies of the original book. The pictures look very foggy, just like xerox copies. The same thing happened to me with the amazon re-edition of Kieslowski on kieslowsli which original edition I bought in NY 15 years ago, costed me the half and looked very nice...

4.0 out of 5 stars Fragments of a larger idea 29 Oct. 2007
By HelloPhotokitty "Kathy" - Published on Amazon.com
After reading "Sculpting in Time" (which I suggest is important reading to understand tarkovsky and his work), I was hoping that his diaries would shed some light as to the inner workings of the mind of a cinematic genius. Despite many moments of creative prose, and interesting streams of thoughts, on the whole, I was disappointed. I felt as if I were a distant observer to his memories and daily entries. Perhaps some of the work is dry because he didn't intend to have this published, whereas "Sculpting in Time" was (hence the more coherent, poetic and dynamic work) for the audience. It is a good read, the blood and guts of the artist himself, but once again, I would read Sculpting first.
