Storyline

Mikhail Vartanov's influential documentary about the imprisoned genius Sergei Parajanov who was persecuted "during the height of his artistic power," for his unruly life style and non-conformist masterpieces -- "The Color of Pomegranates" and "Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors" -- hailed as some of the greatest motion pictures of the 20th century. Made in a blockaded, war-torn Armenia, under the prohibitive conditions of only one hour daily limit of electricity, Parajanov: The Last Spring (1992) caused a sensation at its premieres in Russia and Armenia and influenced numerous future books, writings, and films. After the premiere in Russia, Tonino Guerra, the screenwriter of Federico Fellini and Michelangelo Antonioni, wrote: Mikhail Vartanov's film, Parajanov: The Last Spring (1992), about the last days of our great Parajanov, excited and filled me with the strength to resume the way of the magnificent tale that the Maestro had taken.

Shocking, amazing, beautiful!!!!!
5 October 2003 | by (Seoul-Korea) – See all my reviews

Someone wrote that nobody can describe Paradjanov because he was unique man and artist. I am in love with Paradjanov and I want write and describe his movies everyway even if is wrong. I was very happy to see Last Spring film because I understood life and movies of Paradjanov more greatly. I never see Confession by Paradjanov and I was sad to know he couldn't finish it. Last Spring is shocking, amazing, beautiful. Wow from Seoul!!!!!!!!!!
