This movie is timeless masterpiece, one of the best in Georgian cinematography. It is considered to be allegory of the system in Soviet Union and that is true; but nowadays when that system doesn't exist, it is difficult to relate to that period of time, especially for younger generations, who were born after collapse of Soviet Union.Somehow the movie hasn't lost it's relevance, even more, now this allegory can be attributed to organizations and to modern managers. Bureaucracy, lack of communication, procrastination,absenteeism and strange decision making process, what we often see in our workplaces, this movie is allegory to everything listed above. It is heavily loaded with quotations. It is one of the must watch movies in my opinion. Even more, you can watch it several times and every time you can rediscover a lot of new things. Thus, if you haven't seen it yet, I strongly recommend.
