The Soviet Union has collapsed. Civil and ethnic wars have broken out in Georgia, Azerbaijan, and Armenia, three republics in the Caucasus. The post-Soviet Caucasus have turned into one large conflict zone. Two radically different people with different ideals, problems, and goals are united by the conflict zone. Gogliko, a Tbilisi street boy, and Spartak, a Sukhumi sniper, are forced to solve problems of the street and problems of the state together. For one, the goal is to get back the money he lost gambling; for the other, it is to carry out a general's absurd military mission. In spite of it all, their paths cross and their lives are changed forever.Written by
This is a sequel to Gasierneba Karabagshi by Levan Tutberidze, which was a breakthrough of Georgian cinema in the third millennium. The sequel is as perfect as the first film, although directed by another person. Moralistic humanism (or humanistic moralism?), Caucasian who-is-who and what's-going-on-there-and-why, Georgian soul turned inside out, Miles Davis as one of the key plot spots, juicy storyline with gangsters, Abkhazian war, friendship, Georgian humor and Georgian wisdom, and much more. Mikhail Meskhi seems to get established as one of the leading Georgian actors, although Zura Ingorokva is equally eloquent and eye-catching. You won't get enough watching it over and over again.
