Educational Reviews

"...A lurid narrative, to be sure, but in Paradjanov's hands the story is secondary to the flamboyant, poetic style, which combines oodles of color, lyrical camera movement, great swaths of music and operatic performances, and an emphasis on myth and ritual, to fashion a visionary portrait of a past that may not always be comprehensible but is steadily fascinating." ***1/2 Recommended Video Librarian
