  1. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film The White Bird Marked with Black

    3.5. For whatever reason this is the only one of Illyenko's films I've seen that failed to kindle much enthusiasm in me. Maybe a few years from now I'll take another look - and, you know, Ah-ha! How could I have failed to..?

  2. Jorge Negrete's rating of the film The White Bird Marked with Black

    Like a tenderly soft Paradjanov.

  3. José Neves's rating of the film The White Bird Marked with Black

    Like Paradjanov, to Ilyenko film is a collage of spontaneous moments, sparse situations that are linked by affinity in accordance with a musical rhythm or a pictorial tune. Visual allegories and local folklore with a stunning energy, within its own universe and logic, a free form movie out of the common rules of academic language, as Barnet so well inaugurated. Shadows of forgotten ancestors in an unforgettable film.

  4. Mellow Dude's rating of the film The White Bird Marked with Black

    Golden Prize winner at 7th Moscow Filmfest
