An interesting but uneven examination of ethnic conflict
24 August 2006 | by CaptEccoSee all my reviews

A couple of friends from Tbilisi take a trip to buy some drugs and end up in a war zone. They're captured first by the Azerbaijani militants and then one of them is "rescued" by the Armenians. Ethnic conflict comes under heavy scrutiny and Tutberidze is not presumptuous enough to offer any answers. That and the realism of the characters keep the film afloat, but just barely. It's bogged down by flashbacks to the main character's relationships with his father and with a depressive prostitute (the typecast Nutsa Kukhianidze) that don't have any bearing on the story and don't offer any additional information about his character, and by a ghastly Muzak score that threatens to demolish every scene it intrudes upon.
