The Sacrifice
Cast:Erland Josephson, Susan Fleetwood, Allan Edwall
Credits:Directed by Andrei Tarkovsky. (Swedish with English subtitles, color, b, 35mm).

Tarkovsky's final film wherein, he exhibited all of his mastery, especially his unsurpassed sense of interior rhythm and use of color to enhance the symbolic implication of the photographed event. A small group of people in a house by an unspoiled shore, react to what sounds like the outbreak of an apocalyptic war. Alexander, who has been anticipating this, makes a pact with God to "save" the group. Made at the onset of his fatal illness, this achievement is a cinematic testament, which exposes the essential aspect of film, concieved by Tarkovsky as "sculpting in time."
