  • ★★★★★ review by Des Saint on Letterboxd

    A beautifully crafted movie about Azerbaijan during and post WW I.

    A Muslim and a Christian, from prominent families, fall in love and against their parents' wishes, and get married.

    Their union is tested by two wars as is his choice for undying love for his woman and the need for martyrdom.

    The cinematography is superb in depicting a by gone era and the culture that defined it.
