This avant-garde film by Russian director Sergei Parajanov depicts the life of the revered 18th-century Armenian poet and musician Sayat-Nova (Vilen Galstyan). Portraying events in the life of the artist from childhood up to his death, the movie addresses in particular his relationships with women, including his muse (Sofiko Chiaureli). The production tells Sayat-Nova’s dramatic story by using both his poems and largely still camerawork, creating an impressionistic work.
