5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable book by a great artist 15 Oct 2013
Perhaps I can add a little clarification. The book consists of seven literary works by Para(d)janov. They are not exactly screenplays, in that they don't correspond to the films. Indeed, some of the films were never even made. Knowing "The Colour of Pomegranates" well, I can see that what P has provided is a sort of impression of the film as it took form in his mind- fascinating if you know the film, probably pretty baffling if you don't, but still impressive. Maybe what we have here is a new literary genre. If you find the book dull or impenetrable, my description won't convert you, I'm sure. Until James Steffens' book arrives at the end of October, this is the only book in English (as far as I know) by or about one of the world's greatest film-makers. My recommendation of this title is pretty academic while people are asking for such outrageous sums for what is, after all, just a pocket-sized paperback. If the book is ever reprinted at a sane price, I'd advise interested parties to grab it, before it goes out of print again. End of rant.

3.0 out of 5 stars average book 13 Feb 2004
By adnau1 - Published on Amazon.com
the book is ok not good not bad. it is the only one in english but i wish it had analysys of Parajanov's movies and some other things like pictures etc. One person below is simply rude because parajanov.com is a highly reputable site it warms my heart to see such a loving tribute to the great filmmaker. The translation is interesting but i wonder if a lot was "lost in translation" since it passed 2 or 3 stages, first from russian (or armenian?) into french then only to english

5.0 out of 5 stars Clarification 27 Jan 2002
By Guy Bennett - Published on Amazon.com
I am the translator of "Seven Visions" and would like to comment on a couple of the points made by the preceding reviewer.
First of all, "Seven Visions" does not pretend to be *about* Paradjanov; it is a collection of seven of his scenarios, as clearly stated on the back cover. It is indeed *by* Paradjanov in that he is the author of the scenarios in question, and that he intended them to be published together in book form. Those wanting a biographical and/or aesthetic study of Paradjanov and his work, with photographs of the artist and stills from his films, may wish to consult Patrick Cazals' "Serguei Paradjanov," in the Cahiers du cinéma collection.
Film release dates were all drawn from Western and Soviet sources, including both books and periodicals on cinema. Every effort was made to insure their accuracy. The same is true regarding the integrity of translation. As for the "missing page" from "The Confession," I worked from what was to my knowledge the only published version of this scenario, which I translated in its entirety. In that version, "The Confession" contains no additional pages or material of any kind.
Finally, concerning the spelling of his name, "Paradjanov" (with a "d") is the standard Western transliteration. It is also written without the "d," albeit less frequently.
Regrettably, it was not possible for me to post this clarification without rating my own translation.

5.0 out of 5 stars why all the negativity? 19 Jan 2004
By Django - Published on Amazon.com
How about just being thankful that there is a book in English by/about Paradjanov. The first reviewer (whose site is of questionable quality, by the way) ignores all the hard work that went into putting this book together and quibbles over things like the letter D. How annoying is that? Considering that Paradjanov only made 4 major films in his lifetime, any work about him is welcome and should be treated with kindness, not negativity.
