Trivia

Originally actress Leila Abashidze was told that she was one of the candidates for the role of the cheerful Marine, but later when she was seen face to face she was rejected, and director Siko Dolidze said it was because her eyes were very sad. But finally, when she was told to tell jokes or laugh, she did it so perfectly that she was eventually hired. See more »
