It is love at first sight when Lisa and Giorgi meet randomly on the street. The encounter happens so fast and is so brief that they forget to ask each other‘s names. They arrange a time and place to meet on the following day and continue on their way. In the strange moment their love occurs, Lisa and Giorgi are visited by a force that neither of them could have predicted; they fall victim to a curse, and are destined to wake up the next day with a totally different appearance. A young couple, magic, the contemporary Kutaisi, its cinematographic history, and the phenomenon of cinema itself are the primary elements of this movie. It is a simple love story that ends with hope, and is filled with both banal and humorous observations of everyday life.

The film takes a small-town television station as the centrepiece of its story and draws a pseudo-ethnographic portrait of a community in Georgia. Rituals and traditions define the lifestyle here, though a distant warped reflection of the modern world has already invaded the collective mind. Here performance of one’s self in the best possible way is of primary importance. This cinematic kaleidoscope of characters, places and events unveils the life of the local community and its hybrid values. The sole journalist of the television station, Dariko, functions as Virgil from Dante’s Divine Comedy, taking the audience on a trip through the community’s moments of revelation.

A journey into a lively but rotting building in a provincial Georgian town. It once used to be a hotel called ‘Bakhmaro’. At the centre of the building is a restaurant whose walls are covered with bright green and orange plastic foam and where tables are set, waiting for customers – who rarely come. A Chinese shop, a slot machines and a political party office can also be found here. The building is a microcosm intruded by the constant anticipation of change. It is a model of this troubled country with its endless demonstrations and opposition rallies. On the backdrop of political events, somehow, all of life is here.

The 2008 Georgia-Russia War resulted in the deaths of several hundred people and expulsion of tens of thousands from South Ossetia. Is there a way to show the tragedy of families that lost their loved ones, thousands of people forced to leave their homes, soldiers doing the fighting, and children who cannot comprehend the situation? Salomé Jashi answers this question in a way that leaves few apathetic, though the horrors of war are never visible on the screen. Her short film is based on an interesting formula of making the audience witness to a tragedy it never sees.
