Brigands, chapitre VII by Otar Iosseliani( Visual )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in Russian and Georgian and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This crazy, satirical epic humorously portrays several eras in European history. Though the costumes and regimes change, the film suggests, the human motives of lust and greed remain the same. Jumping back and forth in time, the film condemns its characters to an eternity of irony. In one section, a medieval king named Vano, who has a penchant for exotic torture techniques, executes his wife for being unfaithful. Seamlessly the film flashes forward to the early 1930s, with another Vano, played by the same actor, portraying a low-down thief who suddenly seizes power. Intercut with all of this is the story of a contemporary Vano, a hapless drunk who wanders across the underworlds of Europe

Pomme and Pierre have been together a long time--long enough that passion and spontaneity have given way to predictability and cold shoulders. On a hike together one afternoon, Pomme declares her independence by staying in the woods rather than returning to an underwhelming life at home. Pierre, despite his concern for Pomme, seems all too capable of adapting to life as a bachelor, a worrisome realization. As Pomme begins an extended meditation in the forest on where her own life should go next, both are left to contemplate the strength and meaning of each other's commitment. Is it worth the effort it will take to get them back to where they used to be?
