Favorites of the Moon revolves around two objects, a rare set of 18th-century Limoges china, and a 19th century aristocratic portrait. As these items are passed, sold, or stolen from one character to another, a giddy round dance of excess begins to take shape.
Taking to Paris for the first time, Georgian director Otar Iosseliani bottles the cheek and clamor of the crowd and shakes it up to create a rowdy city symphony reminiscent of Jacques Tati. Overflowing with curiosities, this full-of-life film also features a young Mathieu Amalric as an art thief!
