According to Wiki:

The Color of Pomegranates (Armenian: Նռան գույնը) is a 1969 Soviet film written and directed by Sergei Parajanov

I was first introduced to this movie by the music video God is God by Juno Reactor. I was absolutely mesmerized by it. The imagery was so unusual, so evocative. The movie itself I found on youtube. Doesn’t matter if you can’t speak Armenian, the version I saw was largely silent. It’s certainly not action-packed: it’s the kind of movie you might watch when you want to be quiet and contemplative, and just let the images present themselves to you. It’s like a fluid art gallery. Highly recommended for a quiet 2 hours of unusual beauty.
