Oh good, more Russian Soul bullshit. Ooh, look at the suffering peasants, look at the hammy acting, look at the flat writing. Yup, this is a soviet film alright. Besides the wonderful semi-last scene, this is just aesthetic porn all throughout. And yet, Parajanov considers his prior work "garbarge" in comparison to this (guess I know what to avoid now). Fingers crossed that his follow-ups are better.
