Directed by Sergei Paradjanov


From Sergei Paradjanov ("The Legend of Suram Fortress, Shadows Of Our Forgotten Ancestors) one of the most acclaimed experimental directors of the Soviet cinema, comes Ashik Kerib, a 19th Century romantic tale evocatively brought to life.

In recounting Lermontov's fable of a wandering minstrel trying to earn enough money to marry the girl he loves, Paradjanov dispenses with conventional storytelling devices in order to present a boldly unique cinematic experience. Glorious tableaux, exquisitely composed, choreographed and photographed, are combined with intertitles, images of early Russian artwork and a haunting blend of traditional and contemporary musical forms, all of which combine to form an enthralling and utterly unique cinematic experience.

"A visual feast! A rapturously strange, eccentric fairy tale...A most extraordinary film!" - Michael Wilmington, The Los Angeles Times
