Andrei Tarkovsky, “The Sacrifice”

“Lord, deliver us in this terrible hour. Do not let my children die, my friends, my wife. I will give you all I possess. I will leave the family I love. I will destroy my home, give up my son. I shall be silent, will never speak with anyone again. I will give up everything that binds me to life if you will only let everything be as it was before, as it was this morning, as it was yesterday, so that I may be spared this deadly, sickening, animal fear.”
