The Sacrifice – Offret
Andrej Tarkovsky, France/Sweden 1986

Tarkovsky's final film, a visionary masterpiece, unfolds in the hours before a nuclear holocaust. Alexander, a retired actor, who is celebrating his birthday with family and friends when a crackly TV announcement warns of imminent nuclear catastrophe. Alexander makes a promise to God that he will sacrifice all he holds dear, if the disaster can be averted. The next day dawns and, as if in a dream, everything is restored to normality. But Alexander must now keep his vow. Among many other awards, The Sacrifice won the coveted Grand Prix (Special Jury Prize) at Cannes in 1986.
