I loved this film for its simplicity , typically Russian , Tarkoswki style shots and some great music . a group of musicians from Tbilisi are sent to a remote village in Georgia to practice and there with the medium of a rural girl they try to get to know the people who are totally different than them , but still are their countrymen !
I loved the shot when a train from Russia was passing by and the gazes of all the soldiers and " chic" city people was encountering with those of this poor village .... the characters of the village people are quite funny , very simple, still humorous and humble ...
it showed how different people from different backgrounds can be and how simply they could get to understand their different lifestyles ... the curious way the girl was playing the piano and how anxiously she put the record given by a cellist to her to play was really awesome , i loved this movie !!
