"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."
A love story set against the historical pageantry and epic legends of medieval Russia. In Ukrainian. AKA: "Tini Zabutykh Predkiv," "Shadows of Our Ancestors," "Shadows of Our Forgotten Ancestors."
