THE COLOUR OF POMEGRANATES
a film by Sergei Paradjanov
**** A REMARKABLY BEAUTIFUL AND INSPIRING FILM Empire
Sergei Paradjanovs celebrated, dreamlike masterpiece paints an astonishing portrait of the 18th century Armenian poet Sayat Nova, the King of Song. Paradjanovs aim was not a conventional biography but a cinematic expression of his work, resulting in an extraordinary visual poem. Key moments in his subjects life are illustrated through a series of exquisitely orchestrated tableaux filled with rich colour and stunning iconography, each scene a celluloid painting alive with stylised movement.
One of cinemas most revered and beautiful films, The Colour of Pomegranates is a unique and rewarding experience that haunts the memory long after viewing.
