Storyline

Swollen up by the spring inundation, the river falls down on the lowlands and before eventually throwing rocks and silts in the sea, gathers them here and there in the middle of the river. In several days, even sometimes overnight, in these shoals rather large islands are created. Soil of such an island is rich and fertile. An old man and his young granddaughter decide to grow corn on this island. But soldiers pass by.

Trivia

Originally, the island was supposed to be filled with wildlife, but due to unknown reasons that was cut from the script. The filmmakers did get 2 deer to walk around on the island, but one died in transport, and the other was badly wounded. So they decided to just put the wounded deer on the island, capturing its death on film. See more »

I am astounded by the 7.7 rating here. A man and his granddaughter settle on an island formed by a river in Soviet Georgia and plant a corn crop. There is almost no dialogue and the scenery is nice but the story ends rather abruptly. I can appreciate the beauty of nature but the lack of any conversation between the two main characters was maddening to me. At least there are not many subtitles to read here but I need more of an interaction to hold my interest.
