Storyline

A passionate tale of love and liberation set amidst the conservative confines of modern Georgian society, AND THEN WE DANCED follows Merab, a devoted dancer who has been training for years with his partner Mary for a spot in the National Georgian Ensemble. The arrival of another male dancer, Irakli-gifted with perfect form and equipped with a rebellious streak-throws Merab off balance, sparking both an intense rivalry and romantic desire that may cause him to risk his future in dance as well as his relationships with Mary and his family.

AMAZING
9 November 2019 | by itstsirachkaSee all my reviews

So close to Georgian reality, i felt like i was back in Tbilisi again, which i absolutely loved. So much representation for the culture, in a way that highlights the good parts and also touches on the bad parts that need to be improved, or disposed of. the storyline is wonderful! the buildup for the romance is amazing and well-developed. The actors are phenomenal, i felt literally every emotion they felt. I absolutely loved the metaphor of Kintouri, that Merab & Irakli dance together. the music!!! is so good!!! In conclusion, the movie is wonderful and literally everyone needs to watch it. Huge Shoutouts to the actors and Levan Akin for creating this story and putting it out there in the world. Much Love from Sakartvelo (Georgia)
