It was during a spirituous séance that [Tarkovsky] supposedly entered into contact with Boris Pasternak, who told him he would shoot seven films.
“Only?” Andrei said.
“But good ones,” Boris Leonidovich replied.
And not counting his school works, Tarkovsky in fact created seven films.
The projection began. It was the first time that Andrei really saw [his final film, The Sacrifice]… Did he think of Pasternak’s prophecy?
