A film of three segments: The deserter, Sunday and The nomads. The first segment was released separately as a kind of trailer but the next two episodes have only been shown as part of the combined film.

This is one of its kind. A film of dazzling ingenuity and dizzying aesthetics explodes the viewer's senses in all sorts of uncharted directions. Felliniesque at points and close to Parajanov it uses the image of Death to tell three stories about violence. Klimov's 'Come and See' must have been influenced by this one and the panegyric of violence, joy, pleasure and pain conjures indelible imagery. Major work of art!
