Why do I like Tarkovsky films? I don’t claim to understand the philosophy of the master. Each Tarkovsky film is like a portal to a world which you can travel into, as long as you keep you eyes on the screen. In ‘The Sacrifice,’ the set is sparse, a spacious house in a barren island, and a tree without a single leaf. But, how Tarkovsky presents these images, we are, so to speak, out there with Michael. Devastating.
