What is it to be a Woman surrounded by hateful society? What does it mean to be a perfect Mother? Georgian debutant Dea Kulumbegashvili bravely takes original and unexpected turns to portray a painful life of one particular, wounded, outcasted, excluded Woman, avoiding traditional storytelling and daringly provoking with specific sense of humour, unpleasant situations, dangerous desires.
Immersive experience is achieved with very long slow silent unedited shots, exclusively filmed on 35mm. Don’t be afraid if you will not fully understand everything. Radically extreme drama strikes much stronger after a while, when you just can’t stop to search for answers to difficult questions about religion, god, family, alienation, sexual harassment, violent behaviour, humiliation. The film was awarded in San Sebastian IFF, earned FIPRESCI award at the Toronto IFF and selected as Georgian candidate for the Oscars.
