Storyline

During the shooting of Andrei Tarkovsky's last film Offret, cameraman Arne Carlsson taped around 50 hours of behind the scenes footage. Editor Michal Leszczylowski took the material and added scenes of previous interviews and interesting statements from the script of Offret and from Tarkovsky's book 'Sculpting in Time'. The result is a documentary that shows the way Tarkovksy worked: carefully building each scene. Shows why he did the things he did: his vision on film. And shows the emotion of the man Tarkovsky: his great disappointment when the camera breaks while shooting the house going up in flames. Written by Arnoud Tiele (zelva@tiele.nl)

WOW! Incredible film!
24 June 2008 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

If you enjoyed Voyage in Time, you might enjoy this film a hundred times more like I did. It doesn't have any of the 2 minute silent shots of trees like Voyage in Time. Instead it just has a LOT of footage of Tarkovsky directing The Sacrifice. It has a LOOOT of footage of just him talking about his views on art and life. His wife is interviewed and she reads from his personal diaries. There is simply SO much valuable behind the scenes footage it's almost hard to believe! You see a lot of Tarkovsky. He is vocal, and unlike I thought he is not at all shy. I'm not even finished with this brilliant film yet, just had to stop and check out it's page, i'm 1:22mins into it and it's 1:41 mins long! This is the only film I know of where you get to see Tarkovsky DIRECTING and working with actors, and putting up sets with decorators, working out shots and scenes. I cannot say enough good things about this film. If you love Tarkovsky or The Sacrifice, or perhaps even any one of his films you'll love this film. If you love cinema or interested in art or film-making, you might enjoy this film a lot as well- it even has a very high chance of changing your whole outlook on art and life. Not only is this film about Tarkovsky, a great subject, but it is simply a wonderfully made film, with it's own poetic rhythm. I forgot to mention that many, many passages of great importance are read from Sculpting in Time, Tarkovsky's book. This is a must see if you are a Tarkovsky fan and you have any interest in watching him actually make the film. This is on The Sacrifice DVD from KINO VIDEO. I rented this disk just to see this documentary and I am blown away right now. Unlike Voyage in Time, there are no boring moments, and there is a lot of diolouge and action. It seems like they show how they shot every scene in The Sacrifice. But this is a long film, filled with Tarkovsky's own words - actually that's what the film is really about for me: Tarkovsky's vision, life, words, theories, and love of film-making. The best of both worlds, the making of a film mixed with the directors views on art, film-making and life. Perfect! See it, please.
