  1. patchwork's rating of the film The Wild Swans

    Rappresentazione estone di una favola di cui mantiene le matrici originarie, ovvero inquietudine e crudeltà. Con pregi e difetti del cinema di genere anni '80 (musica sincopata da thrilling italiano del periodo, fotografia sfumata e piena di controluce, montaggio straniante), che però riesce a creare un effetto onirico non malvagio

  2. Pierre's rating of the film The Wild Swans

    One of the more remarkable entries I've come across in my journeys through Soviet fairytale cinema. Sound is just as integral to the story as image—sylvan vistas conjure birdsong, vacuous stone castles breed thrumming cellos & ghastly synths. In an echo of Andersen's Little Mermaid, once our heroine is transplanted from the natural world into feudal society, she loses her voice. Domestication is suffering in silence.
