By Layla Alexander-Garrett

The Sacrifice is Andrei Tarkovsky’s ultimate masterpiece. The movie used to be shot in Sweden, in summer season 1985 whereas Tarkovsky was once in exile; it grew to become out to be his ultimate testomony, urging each one person to take own accountability for every thing that occurs within the world.

Day after day, whereas the movie was once being made, Layla Alexander-Garrett – Tarkovsky’s on-site interpreter - saved a diary which kinds the foundation of her ebook Andrei Tarkovsky: The Collector Of Dreams.

In this booklet the nice director is portrayed as a true, dwelling individual: tormented, satisfied, inexhaustibly type yet from time to time harsh, unrelenting, conscience-stricken and artistically unfulfilled. “Don’t ever be frightened of the pronoun I,” Andrei exhorted, “Write simply what it truly is that you simply feel.”
