A Necklace for my Beloved, 1971 - ★★★½

A Necklace for my Beloved, 1971 - ★★★½


"Spawn of Sheitan! Silence!"

- Daud (Ramaz Chkhikvadze)

Bahadur Magomedov tells us of his life from being born on a dusty road through to the courtship of his beloved. And how he had fight for her, against two other villagers.

Quaint episodic Georgian fairy tale featuring lots of amusing sight gags, quirky folklore and genuine feel good moments. Ramaz Giorgobiani is knockout as Bahadur, the man who needs to provide a luxurious gift to win the hand of his love.

[Personal Reasons For Remembering]

The unique Dagestan village scenery including an amazing local circus. Gotta love the baby being thrown into the world scene, ohh and the flying flatcap.
