After a gorgeous restoration of his landmark existential sci-f film Stalker earlier this year, another Andrei Tarkovsky masterpiece has been remastered and is coming to theaters. The director’s final film, The Sacrifice, has recently undergone a 4K restoration and ahead of a screening at New York Film Festival and theatrical run starting at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, a new trailer has arrived.
Judging from the trailer, this restoration does justice to Tarkovsky’s swan song with no shortages of haunting imagery. The Sweden-shot film follows an upper-class family who learns World War III is upon them. Starring Sven Vollter, Alexander Erland Josephson, Allan Edwall, Valerie Mairesse, Gudron S Gisladottir, and Susan Fleetwood, check out the trailer and poster below.

When he passed away at the age of 54, Andrei Tarkovsky left a tremendous cinematic legacy with only seven feature films to his name. And his final film, “The Sacrifice,” completed just months before he would succumb to cancer, was his final masterpiece. Now, it has been newly restored and its headed back to the big screen where it deserves to be experienced.
Starring Sven Vollter, Erland Josephson, Allan Edwall, Valerie Mairesse, Gudron S Gisladottir, and Susan Fleetwood, and gorgeously shot by cinematographer Sven Nykvist, the film takes viewers to the anxious edge of World War III, where one family faces the looming horror.
