Directed by Sergei Paradzhanov, 1998
The Ashik Kerib wants to marry his beloved, but it is forbidden by her father because he has little money. She vows to wait for him for a thousand days and nights until he can come back with enough money to impress her father. A romantic drama based on the poem of the same name by the great Russian poet Mikhail Lermontov, "Ashik Kerib" is one of Sergei Paradzhanov"s most brilliant motion pictures. The director succeeds in achieving the effect of polyphony of color and sound.
