Best Georgian Movie!!!
18 September 2013 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

This Movie Is Really Best Georgian Movie, I have Seen This Movie Over 20 Times.

"The sun Sleepless" - Teimuraz Babluani shot at a time when the roads of Georgia and Russia began gradually diverge when crumbled old neighborly relations and communications, with some - was suspected, and others forgotten. And everyone has to live on his own. We do not know anything about why today Georgian cinema shot on money France. Probably just because they are there, and the Soviet - has long dried up. Nowadays it is difficult to come up with a new story. Create new music or draw is not on a similar picture. But if the paintings or music somehow easier, now with stories of deficit long time. A long time ago.

Temur Babluani also failed to come up with something new. Only now after seeing his picture raises the question - is it necessary this new? If you look, you end it all comes down to the simple things. And the "Sun". Fathers and Sons. Genius and ignorance. Philanthropy and indifference. And of course all familiar w word sacrifice.

Masterpiece Temura Babluani I'm proud This Movie Was Made In Georgia..!!!
