Last night at Tigerloaf Manor we watched The Wishing Tree, directed by Tengiz Abuladze, and must add it to our ever-growing list of all-time favourite films. A tragic folk tale brought to life in arrestingly beautiful images, it is but one example of the extraordinary riches of Soviet cinema. Whether such artistic triumphs blossomed due to the restraints under which they were made, or in spite of them, is a difficult and perhaps unanswerable question. We find it a more humane, universal and artistically successful film than the much more celebrated Repentance.
