The Golden Antelope
Золотая антилопа

As one of Atamanov’s greatest works, The Golden Antelope is an intricate retelling of a classic Indian fairytale. The story follows a greedy Raja in search of infinite wealth and a young poor boy with a kind heart. Both meet a magic antelope able to create gold from the sparks of its hoofs. Sharp laconic dialogue, expressive characters, and the Soviet lens on Indian culture makes this film stand out among Atamanov’s series of classic fairytales.
