Storyline

"Seasons of the Year" was the last collaboration of Armenia's two most important documentary auteurs: Artavazd Peleshian and Mikhail Vartanov. The first was Autumn Pastoral (1971) written by Peleshian and directed by Vartanov. Peleshian's brilliant "Seasons of the Year" is one of the three most important documentary films made in Armenia along with Sergei Parajanov's Hakob Hovnatanyan (1967) and Vartanov's Parajanov: The Last Spring (1992). "Seasons of the Year" is an outstanding look at the co-existence of nature and people and is the first film made by Peleshian without the use of archival footage thanks to Vartanov's exquisite cinematography and wizardry in the lab. Eight years had passed before Peleshian made another film. Written by PARAJANOV.com

Pure poetry.
10 June 2005 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

I had never seen any of Pelechian's work before I saw "The Seasons" and that was crucial. The film is the closest you can get to written poetry and has such a beauty that grabs your every feeling from the beginning. It's pure visual poetry. I saw other films by Artavazd Pelechian after this one and I could be sure the guy is a master at what he does. "The Seasons" with a slow motion of a man going downstream holding a sheep. Strange? Absolutely NOT. You may wonder at first what he meant by showing people sliding in the snow and a horde of sheeps but by the end or maybe after a second time view, you get it. Unfortunately it can't be described with words. Only the soul can understand.
