Our take

At once a ravishing city symphony and a love story for the ages, Alexandre Koberidze’s debut feature swoons through the streets of Tbilisi in an amorous haze of digital impressionism. Shot on a low-res cellphone, this beguiling poetic collage is a sensual exploration of memory, heartache, and war.
