for me , it is a special film. and the motif is simple - the evening when I read the novel of Dumbadze and my love for Abuladze work. sure, it is not real different by many other Georgian films from the same period. but its air is unique for the colors and emotions of childhood, for the portraits of adults, for the image of village, for the end. it is a film about freedom in a period who was not real comfortable. it is a film about nostalgia and miracles preserved by only an age and about grow up.and the air of meet with an old universe, so familiar and strange is the source, basic source of seduction in this case. because it is more than the happy meet between a popular novelist and a great director. it is almost a confession about yourself, to you.
