Tbilisi, Georgia, 1992: The Soviet era is over and Georgia must fend for itself. Civil war is raging in the province of Abkhazia. For Natia and Eka, the barely fourteen-year-old protagonists of Grzeli nateli dgeebi, childhood is coming to an end.

brillant movie, the dancing scece at the wedding party of one of the two giris, I haven't seen something so powerful since years and years. Good to see a new generation of georgian movie-makers... My best film of 2013 by far
Outstanding performances by both young leading actresses Lika Babluani (as Eka) and Mariam Bokeria (Natia), accompanied by impressive dancing scene, illustrious editing and suggestive screenplay make it as a remarkable example of modern Georgian cinema that should be remembered for decades.
"In Bloom is the kind of film that would once have been deemed 'Neorealist,' then 'kitchen sink,' and most recently 'miserabilist'... Less an indulgence in despair than it is a calculated accumulation of horrors designed to show violence percolating through a society, ... it’s also electrifyingly well made." - Bilge Ebiri, Vulture
Oh, that dance scene. The title is unfortunately drab and unmemorable, the movie is not. A story set in (Caucasian) Georgia about what it means to be a girl in a violent, depressed town -- it's a story that could be about poverty and violence anywhere, any time.
Con la aparición de un arma, "In bloom" cataliza el drama realista en la historia de dos niñas. En inicio como una reflexión social, luego una mirada pesimista sobre el desencanto. El tránsito hacia la madurez de una forma brusca.
