"Opfer" a.k.a. "The Sacrifice" is a 1986 Swedish film directed by Andrei Tarkovsky. Starring Erland Josephson, it centers on a middle-aged intellectual who attempts to bargain with God to stop an impending nuclear holocaust. The Sacrifice was Tarkovsky's third film as a Soviet expatriate, after Nostalghia and the documentary Voyage in Time, and was also his last, as he died shortly after its completion. Like 1972's Solaris, it won the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival.


"Opfer" is a cataloged instance, composition.

by Erik Levi

While Das Opfer is a less astringent work than Rosse, its use of 12-note procedures and its musical austerity should have aroused strong condemnation.

Moreover, no allusion was made towards Zillig's use of compositional techniques that had been condemned as degenerate in the works of other composers. If Nazi ...
