Movie Info

Teenagers Irina (Nino Kasradze) and Nana (Ketevan Gegeshidze) forge a connection more intimate than what two friends would have. This connection, however, is quickly discovered by the people of their small town, and it forces Irina to leave and Nana to build her own family. After three decades, 55-year-old Irina comes back to the town that shunned her out, reuniting with Nana. As the two talk and look back on their younger years, they realize that the special connection they once had is still there. Written and directed by Tamar Shavgulidze.

  • As the movie doesn't cohere at the end, you're left feeling cheated by the fact that it has required so much patience up until then.

  • Tamar Shavgulidze's quiet, lovely Comets is a film about memory, missed opportunities, and lost loves. At just 71-minutes, it's short and sweet, but packs an emotional punch thanks to strong performances.

  • Understated writing and low key direction places a burden on the performance aspect of the film. But with the stillness and impassivity of the central characters, it's a challenge that the actors struggle to meet.

  • Shavgulidze wisely braids in flashbacks of the quiet, intimate moments between her protagonists, curled up on a blanket or playing cards, leaving the fraught moments of youth to be recounted, absent direct representation, by their present-day selves.
