«Покаяние» (Repentance)

Как начиналась гласность ( glasnost, openness, democratisation?) – Тенгиз Абуладзе While the rest of the world’s socially-conscious cinema seems to be trapped by the limitations of stark realism, Abuladze dares something more. In Repentance, the sword of surrealism is wielded in the name of social commentary and Georgian justice.

Repentance – Покаяние

”Repentance,” a complex, coherent metaphor of the evil of tyranny, is the creation of Tengiz Abuladze, a Soviet Georgian film maker. His attack on Stalinism and the heirs of Stalin has been seen by millions of people in the Soviet Union, and ”Repentance” was the country’s nominee for an Academy Award for best foreign film.
