||The day after the funeral of Varlam Aravidze, the mayor of a small Georgian town, his corpse turns up in his son's garden and is secretly reburied. But the corpse keeps returning, and the police eventually capture a local woman accusing her of digging it up. The trial gradually reveals the truth about the despot's vicious reign of terror, and forces the townspeople to face the reality of his, and the Soviet Union's, monstrous inhumanity during the Stalinist era. Repentance was the first Soviet film that openly denounced the horrors of Stalinism, though the Georgian director Tengiz Abuladze chose to make it allegorical, deliberately using anachronisms and making the leading character look like a combination of Stalin's henchman Lavrentii Beriia, Hitler, and Mussolini.
