Levan Koguashvili (Georgia, 2013)
In person/Levan Koguashvili
(Brma Paemnebi). A shining example of contemporary Georgian cinema, this entertaining romantic tragicomedy tells the story of forty-something Sandro (Andro Sakhvarelidze), who still lives at home with his parents and seems to have no luck at finding true love. The plotline takes its twists and turns as Sandro and his best friend (Archil Kikodze) meet and date various women. Their misadventures and Sandro’s home life are beautifully observed by director Levan Koguashvili, who has a gift for presenting fictional lives on screen with an air of authenticity and whimsy that captures life’s everyday challenges.
