Highly recommended, excellent drama
13 March 2004 | by (Georgian, living currently abroad) – See all my reviews

If you want something to touch your soul deeply, something that will remind you about your motherland and warm feelings from your childhood, presumably forgotten but firmly embedded somewhere in your memories, then this is the right movie. Every time I watch it or tell a friend this story, I have tears in my eyes, and I think it won't leave you without any impression as well. It's about those unresolved and forever-alive problems connected with motherland and identity. And the final scene brings a lot to think about... Unfortunately the young actor (grandson) was killed in a stupid civil war in Georgia, and this fact just shakes my nerves when I think about it. He was an excellent actor!

Watch and enjoy this marvelous work of Georgian Cinema!
