The Colour of Pomegranates (region-B double blu-ray)
Sergei Parajanov’s celebrated masterpiece paints an astonishing portrait of the 18th century Armenian poet Sayat Nova, the ‘King of Song’. Parajanov’s aim was not a conventional biography but a cinematic expression of his work, resulting in an extraordinary visual poem. Key moments in his subject’s 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 cinema’s most revered and beautiful films, now presented in a stunning new restoration by Martin Scorsese’s The Film Foundation. This double blu-ray set contains both the Armenian version (Parajanov's Cut) and the Russian version (Yutkevich's Cut). Plus tons of bonus features.
