Set on a remote island and focusing on a 24-hour period of action, Tarkovsky's final film concerns itself with one man's response to the oncoming apocalypse, as Josephson offers his life in a supreme act of atonement that the world be restored. An overwhelmingly poetic experience that forms a fitting testament to a remarkable career.
