Firstly, I shouldn't wait too long after watching a movie to write its review!
"Life is Color". The story unfolds the tale of an old couple symbolically through carpets. The music and color tones are very apt. Little bits of a nomadic life, like the measure of time in distance and not days are beautiful. The howling of the lover, the trail she leaves for him, her angst and her attempts to run to him while she waits through family matters are very well done. The scenes with the carpets being scrubbed by Gabbeh's feet under clear water with bits of the story floating by are amongst the best shots. The Uncle's search for his bride and their wedding dotted by hundreds of carpets is very picturesque.
