Trivia

Some of the crew and cast have reported that all the principal filming was in fact completed, and Goskino's interruption came too late, though they attempted to confiscate the negatives. Tarkovsky himself spread the rumor, particularly to people at Goskino, that he personally destroyed the negatives, though most believe this was merely a ploy to satisfy Goskino, and the negatives were secreted somewhere. Nobody to this day knows where, and the more-or-less complete film, while never being edited from the raw footage, is now considered lost, not destroyed. See more »
