In this film based on the life of Harutin Sayadyan, the Armenian poet known as Sayat-Nova, the pomegranate is a symbol that is ever present: a whole cosmos lies hidden beneath the fruit’s inedible, armour-like and bitter skin, because each seed is its own small juicy fruit, fertility itself, creation, life... The Armenian genius Sergei Parajanov, indomitable despite his hugely troubled life, did not make a typical biopic of the poet but instead (in a way difficult to describe in words) an experimental film building on many interlinked symbols, which succeeds in evoking the spirit of the bard. “I tried to depict art in life rather than life in art,” Parajanov said of his movie, which after many vicissitudes can finally be viewed by audiences today in the form its creator imagined.
