    A boring, meandering movie that goes nowhere. It may resonate with Georgian viewers. The English dubbing was monotonous.

    Found it on a Vulture.com list of top movies of the decade. I really felt immersed in the quotidian existence of this family, and it really resonated with my own childhood memories. Some scenes, especially of the one of her packing while 5 people look on, captured the stifling claustrophobia she must have felt. I also enjoyed the tradition of singing. Only Males, mind you, but they break out in acapella singing when ever folks gather. I also noted the absence of any religious influence.

    It's a simple, somewhat mundane scenario that, in the hands of a terrific cast and two talented filmmakers, is transformed into a minor Greek comic-tragedy, with one fearless woman trying to stave off loved ones who smother her with guilt and affection.

    Realistic scenes that cross cultural lines convey well a universal dilemma for women.
