In this time-jumping political satire, Georgian filmmaker Otar Iosseliani ("Chasing Butterflies") studies several characters throughout history whose abuse of power and wealth lead to tragic results. In an ancient kingdom, the ruler doesn't trust his wife, so he locks her in chastity armor; decades later, Bolshevik revolutionaries recruit a pickpocket to help them; and, in contemporary Paris, arms dealers congregate to carouse with women, gamble and drink. With Amiran Amiranashvili. 129 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: Russian, Georgian and French Dolby Digital stereo; Subtitles: English. In Russian, Georgian and French with English subtitles.
