It is difficult to say something reasonable about a film who reflects the life of a saint. Because its purpoise is not only artisticall. Because it is the first exercise for present one of the most significant scientist and patriot of the Georgia in XX century. But , beyound emotion and tension and high expectations, it is a beautiful film. the first motif - the impecable art of Rezo Chkhvishvili to propose a realistic Saint Ekvtime. the second - an inspired script, not perfect, not out errors, but enough for create the atmosphere and the dimension of tragedy. Not the last , a great history lesson , result of huge desire to conquest a long time ago forbidden past. a film about a hero. or just admirable portrait of a special, real special saint.
