a masterpiece
25 September 2016 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

in the circle of period, it represents an impressive example of courage. for the Easter sensitivity is a wonderful experience. because it is a story of faith. because the use of Bizantine icons and medieval miniatures represents the basic virtue of a short animation who remains memorable especially for the walk of Mother of God and the respect of saints or for the resurrection of the every day life after the terrible battle.the music of Rimsky-Korsakov and the genius of Iuri Nornstein. this is the basis of this special masterpiece. an eulogy to old time and courage, history and faith. sure, one of the films not for everyone. but, in my case, the emotion was to high level. this is all. an impressive piece from a great contemporary animation director.
