Dimitrij{top} and Andrej{bottom} on an unreal adventure

Why Watch It: Cause I said so. Okay I’m kidding. The Georgia movie, written and directed by Zaza Rusadze, has got some nice moments . It explores the friendship between two male protagonists quite effectively. There’s also the breath-taking views of some Georgian mountains.

Warning: Plot spoilers ahead

Story: Andrej, a young unemployed man with emotional stability issues in a town in Georgia {the European country not the US state} keeps getting into trouble. Another young man, Dimitrij, in the neighborhood seems to have his head firmly on his shoulders, and appears interested in helping him. The troubled young man gets invited to go for climbing excursions in the Georgian mountains/hills This offers Andrej an outing and some reason to get out of the  house, and Dimitrij a change from his monotonous court-room job. It also aids them to bond as friends. However, we learn that there’s something terribly wrong when the police come knocking on the door, accusing Andrej of murdering a man on the streets. Dimitrij readily offers an alibi but Andrej refuses to use it. The nature excursions were a delusion harbored by Dimitrij’s bored and lonely mind. Finally, in the closing shot it seems that Dimitrij is trying to make peace with himself.

Rating: 3.5 for the capturing the beauty of nature in Georgia and the underplaying of the parts by the actors Tornike Bziava{Dimitrij} and Tornike Gogrichiani{Andrej}.
