In Bloom is a must see movie about Georgia's recent past. This period has been covered time after time in many movies but none of them compares.
To start with the plot - it's very simple and depicts almost everyone's life in 90s Georgia. Yet it is so well transferred to the screen, I could not tear away. The movie shows every ugliness we have lived through and it was so authentic I could not get rid of a lump in my throat throughout whole film. Small Georgian quirks might be also interesting and funny to a foreign viewer.
Beautifully shot, with every detail taken into consideration. Tbilisi has changed so much in these 20 years and yet the film captured the 90s vibe perfectly.
None of the child actors are professionals but they are doing magnificent job. They are very real and relatable.
Overall it was a brilliant effort, which deserves to be recognized.
