First Georgian movie, featuring nude female body. That's all.
The movie plot is simple & old: Undiscovered beauty resides in village, but accident helps her to "reveal" her "beauty".
This is first Georgian movie, featuring nude female body and some sexual activity. To help understanding how important above is, I'll say, that there was no nudity in Georgian movie ever. This is first movie. So most local reviews are around that fact, leaving other movie characteristics aside.
The movie itself is not a piece of high artwork, it features some local jokes and typos. Anyways, it worths watching if you're interested in village life of modern Georgia.
Little trivia: Crew was unable to find Georgian actress who will undress in front of camera, so they invited Georgian-born, but US Citizen Ia Farulava for main role.
