Rating: B -- It's a unique film experience, one that is visually satisfying even if its narrative may be unfathomable. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
The undeniable visual pleasures offered by the imaginative images and rich colours are unfortunately undercut by the stylised presentation. Full Review
It's impossible to watch even a few feet of film by Paradjanov without acknowledging his mastery of the medium and the originality of his vision. Full Review
[Paradjanov] recreates the past with an exaggerated sense of myth and magic.
...A minimalist spectacle, an epic with a cast of tens....A display of sumptuous austerity...
New York Times
The storyline is bitty but the images are stunning and burn themselves into your brain. Glorious. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- Although Mr. Paradjanov has a reputation as a prankster, I don't think this is an elaborate joke. Full Review
