Sergei Parajanov União Soviética, 1965

I.Camera's rating of the film Os Cavalos de Fogo

Another mosaic of sound and colour from the Parajanov, this time set among the Carpathian Hutsul mountains. Displaying a genuine appreciation for the folklore of a minority ethnic region in the Ukraine (one not shared by the Soviet authorities), this film about a forester's love for the strikingly beautiful Marichko established Parajanov's nonpareil style for the next three decades. A classic of Sovcolor fabulism.
