And Then We Danced (15)
2019 | Georgia, Sweden, France |Dir. Levan Akin | 113 minutes
Merab, a young dancer with the National Georgian Ensemble strives to achieve perfection and recognition from the strict dance teacher who seems to be looking for reasons to put him down. When a new dancer, Irakli, appears on the scene he experiences competition as well as the stirrings of forbidden desire. This is a compelling love story, but much more than that, it’s an insight into many aspects of Georgian society. The breath-taking choreography and physical ability of the actors weaving through the strong narrative will keep you hooked in for every minute of this stunning film.
