A new book 'Andrei Tarkovsky: A Photographic Chronicle of the Making of The Sacrifice' has been published to mark Andrei Tarkovsky's 80th Birthday Anniversary. The book contains more than 250 photographs taken over the course of the shooting period. Photographs and text by Tarkovsky's interpreter Layla Alexander-Garrett. For more info: www.cygnnet.co.uk
a telling portrait of a man who thought himself an artist, a poet. Nykvist looks intolerant of Tarkovsky, though that could well be due to the rigor of filming with him.
