The first and the most amazing Georgian musical
22 March 2006 | by Raxy-1See all my reviews

I saw this film during Soviet Movie Festival, however, I was surprised that it has nothing to do with the Soviet Union, nor with the problems of the "iron curtain". This is the first ever Georgian musical with good artists, wonderful songs and amazing dances. girls are making a wonderful performance and singing, singing, singing... Giorgi Shengelaia could not have done better. This is his one of most prominent work. As far as I am aware it was very popular in the whole Soviet Union, even though it is totally in Georgian language. Even though the story itself is a little bit pathetic, the performance makes this movie wonderful.
