When a young Georgian man leaves his village to audition for a dance ensemble in the city, his need for money will drive him to underground fighting and prostitution. Falling in love with one of his clients, his life will turn upside down when his lover, an army officer, leaves for the warfront.
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.
