Legend Of Suram Fortress, The

Inspired by an ancient Russian folk tale and adapted from the novella by Daniel Chongadze, The Legend Of Suram Fortress is a dazzling film by visionary director Sergei Paradjanov (Ashik Kerib, Shadows Of Forgotten Ancestors).

As the story opens, repeated efforts by the Georgian people to construct a defensive stronghold continually fail. The building they are laboring to complete collapses, but then a fortune teller remembers an old prophecy: In order for the fortress to stand, the son of her erstwhile lover must be bricked up inside the structure - alive. The young man is faced with the prospect of sacrificing himself to save his homeland.

Filled with vivid and unforgettable imagery, The Legend Of Suram Fortress is a surreal ode to the Georgian warriors throughout the ages who died for their country.
