Critic Reviews for Since Otar Left
Bertuccelli tackles Since Otar Left... with the kind of ambitious imagination that makes one marvel at a natural filmmaker's unexpected and original choices.
The finely crafted film shows the complex needs and anxieties of a three-generation family living in a country that has undergone dramatic political and cultural changes.
This emotionally rich situation is played for all its worth by the entire cast, but the standout is Gorintin.
It is a film that understands women, but more importantly, understands life.
Otar and Lenin make terrific bookends on the post-communist experience for average citizens.
Whatever film acting is about -- technique, presence or truth-telling -- [Esther Gorintin] got it.
Audience Reviews for Since Otar Left
Not a bad movie by any means, but I wouldn't go around recommending it either. It follows the story of three women who are in different stages of life, and live together and are challenged by the new world order...democracy. All three women do a great job acting out their parts, and extra praise must be given to the oldest of the three. I thought it was ok, but found nothing ground-breaking or cutting edge regarding the film.
If you are an emigrant and ever wonder how is life at home now that you have left, I strongly recommend this movie. This is the perfect glimpse at that life that goes on without you. The very touching part of this movie is that the absent person is the most present of all. I loved the topic, the development and the acting. Very good movie.
Julie Bertuccelli did a fabulous work in bringing all these actors together for a stellar performance in this intergenerational tale.
