Early 1990s, in Tbilisi, the capital of the newly independent Georgia after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The country is facing violence, war on the Black Sea coast, and vigilante justice that plague society. But for Eka and Natia, fourteen-year-old inseparable friends, life just unfolds--in the street, at school, with friends, or with Eka's elder sister. Although they are already dealing with men's dominance, early marriage, and disillusioned love, for these two girls in bloom, life just goes on. DVD format.

A sad movie about young people in Georgia during a civil war. A gun, a present to one of the two young girls by an admirer as a weapon of defence is in the center of the movie. It is mostly invisible but keeps us in suspense. It seems as a symbol of violence and insecurity.

Georgia in the early 90's shortly after its independence from Russia. Life was hard and material necessities were in short supply. The story is about two 14-yr old girls going about their lives and dealing with their share of problems. So this is not an uplifting film. However, I have to say the two leading characters were not exactly likable teenagers either. One brooded throughout the entire film without smiling once. This makes watching it a not-pleasant experience. Still, it is good for a time-capsule exposure to a foreign culture. Subtitles.

The story is grim but the acting is very good.

both girls have lived with violence in their families and live midst the threat of violence and bullying in their neighborhood. despite changes in their lives, they love and support each other. Natia responds quickly, with emotion, while Eva stands back and assesses how far she is willing to go.

Bleak and sad. I guess that may be what one would expect; I was hoping some joy to be found in the midst of it, but alas, there was none.
