Movie Info

Repentance (Pokayaniye) features Avtandil Makharadze in a dual role. As Georgian mayor Varlam Aravidze, Makharadze is a strutting, arbitrarily cruel dictator, something of a composite Stalin and Hitler. Visually he very closely resembles Lavrentiy Beriya, Stalin's right hander and one-time KGB chief. As Abel, the mayor's son, Makharadze finds himself in the middle of an ideological squabble when his father dies. Zeinab Botsvadze, a local woman who had suffered mightily under the mayor's regime, … More

Critic Reviews for Monanieba (Repentance)

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (4)

[Repentance] is lit with bursts of satiric humor, with music, bits of opera and great flights of surreal imagery, which only serve to intensify its growing horror. And it is never less than physically gorgeous.

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

Repentance would seem mordantly funny if its wit, like that of its central character, weren't also so cruel.

Full Review… | August 26, 2014
New York Times
Top Critic

Its significance as a social and historical document far outstrips its value as art.

Full Review… | August 26, 2014
Washington Post
Top Critic

Tengiz Abuladze's dreamlike allegorical fantasy about Stalinism, as well as despotism in general, is probably the best known and almost certainly one of the best Soviet films to have surfaced as a result of glasnost.

Top Critic

The result is neither as minatory nor as moving as it thinks it is, despite some arresting surrealist images and the performance of Makharadze as Varlam.

Time Out
Top Critic

Its message is worth heeding everywhere. And its frontal attack on Stalinism makes it a landmark in Soviet film history.

Full Review… | August 26, 2014
Christian Science Monitor

It signifies a Soviet Union coming to terms with its past.

Full Review… | August 26, 2014
Tulsa World

It is a defiant assault on revisionist history that shows, through a series of harrowing flashbacks, that the crimes of the past cannot simply be buried and forgotten.

Full Review… | August 26, 2014
Radio Times

As Gorbachev's Glasnost was being welcomed around the world, the final part of Abuladze's trilogy seemd relevant to a country coming to terms with its violent past. Now, it seems like a talky history lecture.

Full Review… | August 26, 2014
Film4

Repentance stands as one of the finest films to be released as a result of glasnost.

Full Review… | August 26, 2014
TV Guide's Movie Guide

It's worth more for its daring political statement against the totalitarian Soviet regime of Stalin than as a work of moving satire.

Full Review… | January 23, 2014
Ozus' World Movie Reviews

A bold film from the Soviet Union, affirming the ethical values of religion and the cultural values of art.
