just Abuladze in Dumbadze skin
7 May 2012 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

far from basic adaptation, it is picture of rural Georgia in Abuladze style. nuances of feelings, levels of gestures, war, love story, hope, sacrifice, beauty of a life way out of common rules. a not complicated film , fruit of one of great teenagers book. in fact, it is arena for delicate - precise art of Sesilia Takaishvili as wise, nice, powerful grandmother and occasion to reveal the rules of friendship, end of an age, purity of love and faces of village. nothing great. just Abuladze exploring a Georgia in which Soviet regime is only a small shadow and freedom - just definition of each image. a touching meeting between Abuladze science of detail and Dumbadze novel.
