the state
24 June 2017 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

like many contemporary Georgian films, "Iavnana" is the root of a state. special, delicate, strange. the story is simple and dramatic. the images are profound beautiful. the broken peace of a rich family, the effort to discover the girl, the meet and the lost past, the song. as frame of an old portrait of a world who seems so far but, in fact, scene by scene, you discover it as part of yourself. a film about family. about motherhood. about new beginning. about illusion. a film like a gem. or a butterfly. because its delicacy and magic and drama and emotions and tension are unique. because it is a trip in a childhood who, maybe, did not exist but who gives the measure of small gestures and right words. the final state. out of the rules of melodrama. this is it. this is all.
