Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 02/05/2008
"With its vision of nature in Dionysian riot, its chorus line of extravagantly costumed peasants and its shifting point of view, it is hard to tell where ethnography ends in this extraordinary film, and where fantasy begins."
Uncut - 08/01/2010
4 stars out of 5 -- "Somewhere between modernism and myth, Parajanov's symbol-laden film remains peerless."
