Sergei Parajanov União Soviética, 1965

bartkl's rating of the film Os Cavalos de Fogo

Very unique film, throwing all kinds of qualities in the mix, visually, stylistically and emotionally. The story is incredibly heartbreaking. Their exceptional love suddenly gone, and how Ivan never really regains spirit, was so well entrenched in the viewing experience. Anthropologically this film is a very interesting watch as well, although I wouldn't know to what extent it's accurately realistic. Loved it.
