Trivia

Ketie Danelia (producer of the movie) stated in an interview with "Radio Tavisupleba", that the Ministry of Culture and Monument Protection of Georgia, declined to fund the trip for the filming crew to visit the Cannes Film Festival (where the movie was initially set to premiere), and that they've explicitly specified that it was solely due to the fact, that it was depicting homosexual romance. Because of this, very few people that were associated with the production (basically only the main cast and crew), went to visit the Cannes, on their own personal funding. See more »
