Absolute beauty
15 December 2010 | by chetoscoSee all my reviews

It's hard to say, what Nana Janelidze has more of - talent or humanity. I have never seen movies of that kind before. It has Claude Monet in each frame. The film is short - 1h:14 min, but given that every frame is scrupulously composed, it's quite a lot. Movie's symbolism becomes understandable if you take into account the year of its production. It's incredible, but this extremely sophisticated master of Georgian cinema has only four movies, and nothing after 1994, except for 1998 documentary "Georgia in a Water Drop". Instead Nana has been teaching directing at Tbilisi University. Who should be making movies, if not Nana Janelidze, I have no idea.
