Mysticism in Georgia
27 September 2018 | by morlantdkSee all my reviews

Seeming to be a static story, a lot of inner tension and mysticism are to be seen in this film. The opening scene is the summary of the whole work, showing a rock and a river whose water begins to be invaded by a strange color.

Rituals happen to be amazing, like the torches being lit up without physical contact, showing us that there is something else in the world that we call "strange and inexplicable". Three brothers have gone their own way and the sister has remained with the father as keeper of the sacred waters, and by now she begins to feel love, something disturbing that may change her future.

The parable of the fish and the changing seasons add up to this marvelous story, which has a lot in common with Andrei Tarkovski's visual and narrative style, in which daily events become extraordinary experiences. A masterpiece.
