pure gem
22 August 2013 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

delicate subject. and splendid manner to present it. a special beauty as soul of a profound drama. a poem but little more than images, dialogs, music, embroidery of emotions makes it pure gem.it is deep Georgian because its message has universal echo. it is a beautiful film and its secret ingredient is extraordinary science of measure. it is a drama but, in fact, it is a confession. the definition art film can be only a beginning. because more than brilliant art the portrait of mother and her daughter are symbols of lost paradise who rediscover the experiences of viewer. a film who must see it. not for an obvious motif. only for its small virtue to be impressive travel in yours personal universe. because, it is one of than kind of movies who remains the old story of a wise teacher who has the role of mirror for the hopes, fights, miracles who defines each member of public.
