Movie Info

Early nineties, in Tbilisi, the capital of the newly independent Georgia after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The country is facing violence, war on the Black Sea coast (Abkhazia) and vigilante justice that plague society. But for Eka and Natia, fourteen-year-old inseparable friends, life just unfolds: in the street, at school, with friends or elder sisters who are already dealing with men's dominance, early marriage and disillusioned love. For these two girls in bloom life just goes on...

The viewer becomes keenly aware that she is only getting part of the story. But when the truth is so troubling, sometimes part of the story is more than enough.

As arthouse coming-of-age films go, this is brilliant -- smart and sensitive with a screw-you feminist streak.

Despite the seeming inevitability of tragedy and despair, "In Bloom" remains true to its title.

The world painted by directors Nana Ekvtimishvili and Simon GroB is almost relentlessly grim, and even the giggles of two schoolgirls get drowned.

The film accurately reflects the girls' numbness, but it is devoid of sustaining emotional impact. Eka and Natia's full pain is oddly remote.

A fascinating snapshot of a country at war with itself (literally, eventually) as seen through the eyes of two teenage girls, whose lives are complicated enough as it is.

The centrifugal force is supplied by two stunning lead turns by Babluani and Bokeria.

As civility and sympathy prove to be in ... short supply, the girls' unwavering devotion to each other makes for absorbing drama.

This terrifically engaging work raises important questions about universal experience and cultural context - in this case, the search for independent female identity in a society all but suffocated by the threat of violence.

Bold and brassy, Georgia's Best Foreign Film entry may not be the cheeriest viewing but it's still a compelling coming-of-age drama.

Unpredictable, never forced, and forever compelling.

This tense and naturalistic tale of Georgian youth in revolt offers a clever new twist on the tired teen movie.

Co-director Nana Ekvtimishvili's script, nurtured on memories of her own childhood, becomes more focused, even sourly funny, as it evolves.

Like a bomb triggered to go off, In Bloom builds in the viewer's gut, a drama coiled to attack.

While "In Bloom" offers an authentic slice of life from a particular time and place, it never gets close enough to its characters, physically or emotionally, to really hit home.
