Lovely
7 May 2010 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

Nice, touching, a game who offers the flavors of childhood, mixture of drama and pure comedy, music and slices of a Georgian street life, a fairy tale and a moral story. Sofiko Chiaureli is great as Vardo and the choreographic moments are more that the shows of Hollywood. Vakhtang Kikabitze makes the same deep and melancholic type of role. And the girls are amazing. Page of a lost world, the film is more than a testimony about a form of cultural resistance in Soviet Union. It is description of the science to transform the past in a piece of amber, in which the insect is alive for every look. A film like a good short story. With nostalgic dust, with lovely characters, with the desire to discover life more than crumbs of fiction or prison. Must see!
