Great movie, if you wan to understand human nature
30 March 2014 | by gigicskeSee all my reviews

I do not agree with Nika Gigashvili. I think Georgia should not do international movies.

I am in love with the country. And I am from Hungary. And we have similarities, after the socialist era collapsed.

For me was quite enough, how they were speaking about the whole rape and stuff during marriage. Maybe 'cuz I am a girl. The ignorance is a very massive part of the film. And during my travel through the country I experienced the same. I mean the locals with each other, not with me. But situations were quite similar during my childhood. Except guns.

I was a great movie. I watched it two weeks before and it is still keep me thinking.
