Grzeli Nateli Dgeebi – In Bloom

Two teenage girls find themselves growing up before their time in the civil-war affected Georgia of the 1990s.

As they both search for their place in this new society, so the country struggles to establish itself after its break from Russia, and it can be an unpleasant and dangerous place.

A mesmerising solo dance is an outstanding pivotal scene as it becomes obvious which way the girls’ lives are heading, and the film as a whole presented a language and culture which I had not encountered before.

An absorbing watch.
