Set in the final hours before a nuclear war threatens to wipe out humanity, Alexander, surrounded by his family and friends as they descend into fear and turmoil, makes a deal with God: he will sacrifice all he holds dear to avoid the impending apocalypse. Tarkovsky’s final film, The Sacrifice is a visually breathtaking mediation on existential terror and a melancholic swansong from one of cinema’s true auteurs.
