The Steamroller and the Violin - Original Russian Movie Poster
Absurdly rare Soviet poster for the celebrated Russian writer/director Andrey Tarkovsky's school graduation project, the short film 'Katok i Skripka,' also known as 'The Steamroller and the Violin'.
The film clearly foreshadows things to come. With a minimalist approach to dialog, Tarkovsky relies on imagery to communicate emotions and feeling. 'The Steamroller and the Violin' is a little-known but very important gem of both Russian and world cinema.
