Sergei Parajanov União Soviética, 1965

Graveyard Poet's rating of the film Os Cavalos de Fogo

Vividly visual and visceral film from the brilliantly visionary director Sergei Parajanov. It remains one-of-a-kind with its dazzling, colorful cinematography, hallucinatory and surreal, and its almost ethnographic depiction of ancient agrarian life and rituals in a community of the Carpathian mountains. It is a tragic love story and a story of the earth, which is like a forgotten folk song of intoxicating wonder.
