Bориска Колоколa (Boriska Bells) is a hommage to the russian director Andrei Tarkovsky (1932-1986). Boriska is a fictional character from the soviet biographical historical drama Andrei Rublev (1966), a young boy that starts the endeavor of building a bell. The film is loosely based on the life of Andrei Rublev, a 15th century russian Icon painter. The plot turns around for the main character when he witnesses the casting of a bell for the Grand Prince. Boriska is the son of a bellmaker that all is family died from the plague. While in death bed, his father partake the secret of casting a bronze bell. The epilogue of the film is the only part that is shown in colour. This piece is completely synchronised with this epilogue. A real impulse response of a church in six channels was used. The musical quotations are deeply rooted on Tarkovsky’s sound imaginary. The pipe organ chorale Ich ruf zu dir Herr Jesu from the Orgelbuchlein of Bach appears in Solaris and is quoted by other directors (Nymphomaniac, by Lars Von Trier). In Offret, Tarkovsky explores the philosophical aspects, with the quote of Komm süsser Tod from Bach.
