This film is a biography of the Armenian troubadour Sayat Nova that concentrates more on the poet's life as revealed through his poetry than through a conventional narration of important events in Sayat Nova's life. We see the poet grow up, fall in love, enter a monastery and die, but these incidents are depicted in the context of what are presumably images from Sayat Nova's poems, poems that are seen and rarely heard. Parajanov takes us through the set of images from Armenian everyday life: wedding at the church, lamb sacrifice, bath house. Arguably the best movie with images in cinematography. DVD also includes Ron Holloway's documentary film Paradjanov: A Requiem.
