slice of war
21 February 2021 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

My ancestors were Georgians. The war of 2008 remains one of significant events,from the last decades, for me, first for the fer about new lost of Georgia independence. So, Shindisi represents more than a good film. It is a testimony, definition, image of a world, remember of essential values , alive, today. A film about courage and solidarity, served by a beautiful cinematography. A real event, in a place from Georgia, in the frame of Russian agression. For an Eastern European, easy to understand it, nuances by nuances. Short, one of films based by profound honesty. For a part of public, maybe, propaganda. But it is a film about people, simple people, but not about politic and the words of the Russian officer about the care of his motherland to Georgia are enough for many of the people from East to define their cold, powerful realism. Short, a slice of war. Not about heroism but about simple people. Great for the status of pure testimony. And as cure to not ignore but, again and again, remind. The status of the priests/monks in the solve of Sindisi problem remains one of the proofs.
