This old Georgian film simply blew me away! I was so surprised to see that no one has written review on it before me...
First of all, film should have been revolutionary for its time, bold, original and even idiosyncratic, just like films of Bresson, Miklos Jancso (who achieved worldwide recognition one year earlier with his great The Round-Up) etc. And it's still very different, original and interesting today.
The film is about alienated man who is so close to nature that is cut off the society (even family) and stays alone. All the actors are good but the protagonist is simply outstanding! Photography is also remarkable and different and many themes that film descusses are very boldly and cleverly shown: Love triangle, mans maditation on nature and even father-son relationships!
All in all, it's a stunning (and at times difficult) tale of man's solitude, his fight for individuality and maditation on nature. If you get a chance, watch it! 10/10
