Monanieba (Repentance) Reviews

[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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

Its significance as a social and historical document far outstrips its value as art.

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.

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.
