The communist regime did not like at all Ioseliani's movie, which became "widely" visible only a long time after it was shot. The hero is rather lazy and does not care much about the communist ethos of the time and the ideal of a whole nation at work. The film is about being happy far from a madly competing crowd and Ioseliani's message may also apply to today's capitalistic society.
