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)

A great documentary about a great filmmaker's final film.
7 January 2001 | by (Tuscaloosa, Alabama, U.S.) – See all my reviews

I'm not quite smart enough to talk at any depth about Andrei Tarkovsky. His films are, in my experience, unique. Only Kubrick's films have an effect that are remotely similar, but even that is an inadequate comparison. This documentary is best appreciated after you have made yourself familiar with Tarkovsky's seven great, complex, troubling movies; after seeing them, this film serves both as an excellent window into the mind of the man who made them, and as a touching eulogy for his departure. That aside, it's also one of the best films about filmmaking ever made. It's available on the DVD release of "The Sacrifice" as the bottom half of an excellent double feature.
