And then we danced

Levin Akin, Sweden/Georgia, 2019

I liked this film! The storyline was nothing original – hardworking and poor dancer, boy falls in love with boy but in the time and place they are living it cannot be.

But it was a really interesting insight into Georgian culture. The tension that exists there between tradition and the modern world. How the younger generations are pushing for change, whereas for older people men are men, women are women and that’s the way it is and should be.

The dancing was brilliant. Mostly traditional Georgian (which to me looks like Russian) dancing. The traditional music, too – a drum and an accordion. Some of the scenes were beautifully shot. In summary, not amazing but good!
