OFFRET
France, Sweden, United Kingdom | 1986 | Andrei Tarkovsky

THE SACRIFICE

Andrei Tarkovsky’s final film (he died from cancer in 1986 at age 54) is a solemn, magnificent fable about the loss of spirituality in the modern world. Shot is Sweden with Ingmar Bergman’s longtime cinematographer Sven Nykvist and his frequent star Erland Josephson, the movie tells of a man celebrating his birthday with friends when nuclear war breaks out. To avert the apocalypse, the man makes a pact with the Almighty—forswearing everything he has if the world will be spared. “Hang on to the very end and you may find yourself moved as you have never been moved before.” –Andrew Sarris. Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 145 min.

Special admission $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8. No passes, twofers, or radio winners.
