An explanation of the final scenes
25 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The group of men in the closing scene are actually militant separatists who are conducting the ethnic cleansing of Georgians during the uprising in Abkhazia.

Young Tedo reluctantly joins in their drunken dance, then tries to escape, at least

mentally, by recalling his friends glue-sniffing recollections of wild African animals in one of the beginning scenes. He has now come to the realization that there is no where for him to go, nothing left of his family as he knew it. Such is the reality for

thousands of "internally displaced" children in Eastern Europe, as well as elsewhere,

that are literally left to fend for themselves for the rest of their lives. Whatever the political and military realities are in any given country, it continues to be the children, forced to grow up quickly or die at the hands of military forces from one side or the other, that will bear the brunt of future suffering.
