Storyline

The story is set in Baku. A famous photographer has to choose between accepting a valuable job offer in Africa or marrying his fiancee - a young , talented sculptor inspired by images of ritual dances. The photographer decides to accept the job offer and - once again - postpones his wedding. During the ensuing quarrel, the photographer and his fiancee have a car accident along the road which leads to the ancient cave city. They later find themselves in a police precinct, where the photographer has to come to terms with his dread of women or he will not leave the precinct alive. Written by Anonymous

Astonishing
23 August 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This film is really well-done, in the sense that it's constantly changing the viewers' attention and make them wonder what it is all about. At first you might think that it is a cheesy romance, but suddenly it turns into a critic of the state and finally you realize it's just an incredible piece of art. Like one great novel you have already read.

Sahe contains multiple films within, insofar as there are a lot of narratives surrounding the life of the main character (Garib). But it is also a story of the young nation of Azerbaijan and photography in this country and the former USSR.

Even if the narration is really slow at some points, watch it until the end, you won't regret it. In fact you will be amazed.
