Sergei Parajanov União Soviética, 1965

Eriugena82's rating of the film Os Cavalos de Fogo

What a film!! There is something utterly magical here with the rich visuals and impressive camerawork. Not to mention the way in which the plot, a study of life, love and death, is 'framed' by Hutsul culture. The whole thing is like one long dream, vignettes of Ivan's tragedy set alongside the rhythms of everyday life as the seasons pass. One of the most beautiful (and at times melancholic) films I have ever seen.
