Sayat Nova 1968
Probably, besides the cinematic language suggested by Griffith and Eisenstein, the world cinema hasn’t discovered anything revolutionary new until Parajanov’s The Color of Pomegranates. Paradjanov's films also show the influence of Andrei Tarkowsky, a director he greatly admired.

The Colour of Pomegranates is a biography of the great Armenian poet, singer and musician Sayat-Nova. The ‘King of Songs’ wrote is several languages, making him a legend across several countries. Writing and performing at a time of great religious piety (18th century) and a priest himself, he created great romantic and secular works. Parajanov doesn’t attempt to tell the story in a traditional way. Instead, he mixes Sayat-Nova’s writings and his own symbolic (often religious) imagery.
From boyhood discovery of literature, through courtship and monastic life, to eventual death, the film explores not the biographical details of his life, but the spirit of his work through the themes, metaphors, and symbols of which it was crafted.

It's a miracle in itself that we're able to see the original cut today. The authorities cut Parajanov's film and hired another film-maker (Sergei Yutkevich) to re-cut the film, and this is the release which has been largely screened since. This new restoration is as close to the original as possible.
