  1. Lex Lucas's rating of the film Ashik Kerib

    The remnants of a poetic tradition of folkore storytelling. This is an important relic of exotic poetry, and aside, a beautiful tale, yet childish (wich is why it's so beautiful ; I've rarely seen something like Ashik Kerib's world).

  4. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film Ashik Kerib

    Just have it bare with the voice dubbing

  5. wax@waxsm.com.au's rating of the film Ashik Kerib

    There are so many things to make you gasp in each of Parajanov's films.

  6. Jason's rating of the film Ashik Kerib

    I feel I must employ a term of praise usually reserved for psych rock: face-melting. This is indeed, of the four Parajanov projects I have now seen, the most powerfully redolent of a psychedelic drug experience. Whereas POMEGRANATES and SURAM FORTRESS are extremely precise and formally controlled, this one feels like it might become unmoored at any point, centrifugal force sending it spiralling off into the beyond.

  7. EdieEmm's rating of the film Ashik Kerib

    “Get up, teacher. Minstrels only die on the road. Your journey’s not over yet.” This is just obviously the best film ever made. Or… the worst? One of the two. (Both?) Consider what it means to be Parajanov’s weirdest film: Ecstatic, decadent, riotous camp. Hilarious/earnest subversions. An alchemy of energies/effects. A surrealistic rapture; ridiculous as transcendent. There is literally no option but to give it a 5

  8. between7skies's rating of the film Ashik Kerib

    Again for the love this great magician of images. Parajanov is almost a century ahead of his time. He is the future of film.

  9. Paul Rot's rating of the film Ashik Kerib

  10. Renightz's rating of the film Ashik Kerib

    A fine movie by master filmmaker Parajanov and a great study of how music and color can amplify and carry a losse narrative - storywise - in its own terms.

  14. panagiotatos's rating of the film Ashik Kerib

    7/10 idiosyncratic fairy tale, exotic and picturesque. Typical Parajanov.

  15. Funda Can Çuvalcı's rating of the film Ashik Kerib

    3.5. The scenery, the costumes, the dances were authentic.

  16. Sangkug Yi's rating of the film Ashik Kerib

    Do Russian directors have special sense of beauty? How can they make such beautiful scenes? I especially loved the dance of a girl and a woman. The story is quite abstract, befitting the designation 'oriental fairy-tale'. Nonetheless, it's a beautiful and glorifying story of powerless people of virtues.

  17. Shayne Bowden's rating of the film Ashik Kerib

    Directed by Dodo Abashidze and Sergei Parajanov . Simply amazing film. Based on a short story by Mikhail Lermontov, it's a visual celebration of Azerbaijani culture. Very keen to see other films by these filmmakers. The film is dedicated to Andrei Tarkovsky.

    Sofiko Chiaureli ........................ ! ......... so beautiful.

  20. DVC's rating of the film Ashik Kerib

    Beautiful film by the master Parajanov. A must-see

  21. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Ashik Kerib

    A surprisingly fascinating (and highly symbolical) filmic mixture of narrative and experimental elements. Also the music, blending traditional art and modern sound, is worth mentioning.

  22. Laura Suffield's rating of the film Ashik Kerib

    It's lovely, if a bit camp (unintentionally, I presume) and dated. Not as compelling or coherent as some of his others but of course worth watching, if just for the beautiful costumes. The story, what there is of it, drags on rather.

  23. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Ashik Kerib

    A rich folkloric film which would seem very middle eastern, but is in fact based on a story by Russian author Mikhail Lermontov. So it's basically a very kitsch production, but a high quality one... the kind that ends up dedicated to Tarkovsky.
