an archetype actualized into a wrongly forgotten modern myth
About 30 years ago I several times saw this movie, and still ever I remember the great impression, made by its touching and poetic actualization into human (and political) modern myth of the old Christian archetype; such in embarrassing pictures, beautiful scenes and shots; in puzzling images and metaphors; in moving music, rhythms and songs; in fine, sincere corporality and love scenes; in a ravishing tempo. Although violence, usurpation and cruelties are playing a (very functional) role as well, seeing this motion picture is not at all a saddening or disgusting experience: certainly no more than when undergoing the catharsis caused by a classic tragedy. - Why this inspiring movie seems to be forgotten? Maybe for political reasons? Where one can see it again?
