Capital Celluloid 2013 - Day 14: Mon Jan 14

Ivan's Childhood (Tarkovsky, 1962): Greenwich Picturehouse, 1pm
The Greenwhich Picturehouse have made a great start to the new year. Kubrick's debut movie last week and now Tarkovsky's. Hats off.

Chicago Reader review:
'Andrei Tarkovsky's powerful 1962 first feature, also known as Ivan's Childhood and The Youngest Spy, is his most conventional as narrative, though it contains some remarkable dreamlike interludes that anticipate his later work. Shot in black and white, it follows the adventures of a boy serving as a spy on the front lines during World War II. In Russian and German with subtitles.'
