very nice film
3 June 2003 | by meshkoSee all my reviews

Nico is a college graduate. He gets assigned to be an engineer at a wine factory. He tries to do his job well and falls in love with beautiful Marina. The movie is very slow paced (like a movie about Georgia should be) but it never gets boring. Sometimes it is very funny and almost never too sad. Leaves you with a very nice feeling.
