"I think that the main focus of people going to the cinema is time – whether it's time lost, time forgotten, or a time never experienced before. People are driven there by a desire for life experiences, because cinema, like no other form of art, expands, enriches and condenses the real human experience and at the same time not only enriches it, but immortalizes it. That is the real power of cinematograhpy – not the star power, the stereotyped plots or the entertainment".
Andrey Tarkovsky
