a long awaited Georgian jewel
15 December 2010 | by chetoscoSee all my reviews

Georgian cinema had always been known for its high quality. The first independent years did not give the chance for Georgian cinematographic talents to realize their potential. But the blow still came. This flawless epic movie, beautifully shot and impeccably cut at Barrandov studio in Prague, includes funny, clever, life-like and twisted plot, perfect acting (Giorgi Gurgulia being particularly bright), and bullseye directing. The movie can be considered an encyclopaedic insight into today's Pan-Caucasian reality. And yes, the trademark Georgian humour is abundant. So is moral.

The film was soon followed by equally precious sequel, as brilliantly directed by Vano Burduli.
