  1. Abner Monteiro's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

    The experience of wathing this movie has tranpass any kind of "wirdeness feeling", is more like a raw dose of something that i can´t explain(don´t know if´s anguish or "good" anxiety, because its looks out of reality, without leave the reality, and this inexplicable mood turns the film in a need for sensing art and cinema.

  2. Krissy's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

    Very poetic and at the same time brutal. Beautifully rendered folklore tale.

  3. Renato Marañon's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

    El primer amor puede marcarnos. Depende qué tanto determina puede desenvolverse nuestra vida. Si se termina, habrá un tiempo de duelo y luego continuar viviendo o puede marcarnos para siempre. El dilema de Iván se plantea desde lo visual de una forma tan bella que los caracteres no me alcanzarán para alabarla. Esta película es la clara muestra de la intención poética de las imágenes en el cine. Hermosa en resumen.

  4. se77o's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

    A miracle in storytelling and probably lowkey one of the most influential and visionary pictures of the 60s, the decade when freedom took the reins of film-making and film-thinking. Parajanov truly hit the mark with this one: every single thing, here, is a piece of beauty, truth and sublime, even when what you witness in the image is ugliness, make-believe and bleakness.

  5. Anton Løkke Laursen's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

    A visually captivating dream of impossible love. The film would suffer from a somewhat shorter playing time, but the individual visual ideas are genuinely jaw-dropping.

  6. Скюс's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

    Pure cringe: Surely Sergei Parajanov delivers the most extraordinary pictures- art at its purest form but since this is a love story, I got to admit it hasnt aged well-not a single memorable kiss a-la István Szabó or Roman Raymond Polański. Its very obvious the soviets had been very prudish in the sixties- I prefer Tarkovskij ! But definitely a memorable masterpiece...

  7. Xiang Li's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

    Exactly the crazy visuals needed for such hypnotic cultures and traditions.

  8. MarcoBì's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

    L’opera di P così libera e spirituale fu osteggiata dal regime tecnocratico-materialista che lo condannò più volte ai lavori forzati. Quest’opera (censurata in patria) è un esempio grandioso della sua arte visionaria innovativa energica, disorientante, spiritualmente connessa alle radici e alle tradizioni. Consigliato a chi si ha pensato, almeno una volta, che le galline e le pecore difficilmente muoiono di vecchiaia

  9. between7skies's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

    Magician of a story teller and sublime hypnotic imagery.

  10. JT Lindroos's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

    Exuberant and unique, constant barrage of vivid, memorable images and loud sounds. A silent film in lurid color. Kind of wonderful.

  11. Koushik Tamilmaran's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

    A feverish tremor shakes the mind when one watches this film. The tunes resonate a long time after the end of the film. An example of an ethnographic film meeting narrative films. An introduction to the life in the Steppe of Central Asia.

  12. Ricardo's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

    Vanguardia pura con la cámara para contar una historia clásica de amor, culpa y religión. Rojo eterno para la estética de los créditos y capítulos.

  13. Samet Mutlu's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

  14. Chierules's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

    Masterpiece, genius, unique, melancholic, ahead of its time, lush, lush, lush!

  15. Søren Axel's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

    Took me back to the carpathians.

  16. Breadpud's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

    Quite an amazing film. This film is bigger and beefier than Goldfinger from the same year. A solid folk-tale script. Epic sets. Hypnotic sound design. Hope I live long enough to see a restoration.

  17. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

    Parajanov's movies are primitive in the most laudatory sense of that word--they make me feel like I'm in a chaotic pagan spirit realm that plays by its own rules. great for unlocking the Ur-child in us all and driving pets out of the room as well

  18. CAP's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

    The story is a pretext for formal experiments, specially in choosing where to place the camera (also upon roofs or trees) and how to move it. With an attention for chromatic elements and ethnographic rituals (like the wedding yoke).

  19. Lennert's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

    Maybe I had too high expectations but to be honest I expected more. Looking forward to rewatch.

  20. Felippe's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

    A estética de Parajanov sempre é impressionante; a composição de cores, o figurino, a musicalidade tornam o filme imperdível. As legendas em português deixam um pouco a desejar.

  21. Rodrigo Salas's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

    In this brilliant movie, Sergei Parajanov brings together avant-garde filmmaking and Ukrainian folklore. His simultaneously meticulous and fantastical depiction of the Hutsul culture somehow resembles Latin-American magic realism.

  22. Justi's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

    What a stunning film. Absolutely gorgeous cinematography and mise-en-scene. Such a raw and intimate portrayal of a forgotten culture. I could feel the smell of the church. The plot did not necessarily engage me as such, but all is forgiven through the amount of work done on this picture.

  23. sahir ravi's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

    seeing the shadow, you remember the ancestors are always there

  24. on.manuel15's rating of the film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

    Más que la historia me quedo con la puesta en escena, increible y única, llamativa, emocionante, como para ver una y otra vez. Aquí la fotografía está en armonía con el diseño de producción para hacer un viaje místico y onirico bien logrado gracias a la música presente una y otra vez, como en una especie de mantra. Ojalá mubi traiga más películas de este realizador
