    "SHE says he's her secretary."
    "Ohh..."
    "And HE says he's her secretary."
    "Oh!"
    "Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe he is her secretary."

    ★★★

    Sumptuous and all. Some wry humor in the narration, but mostly dead serious. If you want to watch moving paintings for three hours, this is the movie for you.

    From a historical standpoint, it's interesting to watch a Soviet-era film that depicts religion as a not-entirely-useful tool against the much more powerful forces of dark, demonic magic - if there's a propaganda angle here, I missed it. From a filmgoing standpoint, it's good as hell.

    Have you ever gotten so horny that you assumed the guy making you horny was in league with Satan himself? Haven't we all. Truly relatable cinema. Anyway, wild and crazy stuff here, in the best way.
