  • The leads are played with freshness and mischief by Lika Babluani as Eka and Mariam Bokeria as Natia.

    June 2, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Directors Nana Ekvtimshvili and Simon Gross adopt the long, contemplative takes of the new wave; much of the film feels familiar, but the location shooting and period details are nicely drawn, a result of Ekvtimshvili's autobiographical script.

    December 19, 2014 | Full Review…
  • This is a story of adolescence and female friendship under pressure, explored with a quietly engrossing combination of familiarity and strangeness.

    September 26, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Babluani and Bokeria are completely believable as the two teenagers who have to grow up very quickly, and a long, uninterrupted scene in which the former dances, alone, at her friend's wedding is a highlight of an extremely engaging movie.

    September 26, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    June 26, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.
