Tariel Mklavadze is a violent and debauched prince who tries to seize a stranger regardless of the consequences or her husband. Three future major figures in Georgian cinema, directors Mikaberidze and Kalatozov and actress Nato Vachnadze, take part in this fascinating film, whose flashback narrative envelops the audience in a reflection on the plot, the characters and the author’s viewpoint.
