March 7, 2017 - "The Sacrifice" (1986)

Tuesday 7 p.m., March 7, 2017
Stanley Coulter Hall, Room 239


Director:  Andrei Tarkovsky
Origin: Sweden | UK | France
Language: Swedish | French | English
Running time: 149 minutes

The Sacrifice, director Andrei Tarkovsky's final film, begins in Bergmanesque fashion on a small, remote island, where friends and family gather for drama critic Alexander's (Erland Josephson) birthday celebration. The revelry is interrupted by a radio announcement: World War III has begun, and Mankind is only hours away from utter annihilation. Each of the guests reacts differently to the news: the most dramatic response is Alexander's, who promises God that he'll give up everything he holds dear--including his beloved 6-year-old son -- if war is averted. Allan Edwall, a local mailman with purported mystical powers, offers to intervene with the Creator on Josephson's behalf.
