Falling Leaves
Გიორგობისთვე

First screened at the 1968 Cannes Film Festival Falling Leaves tells the story of Nico who starts a job as a technician at a state-run wine collective. While his friend Otar adapts seamlessly, Nico refuses to pretend that bad wine can be bottled. He also falls for Otar’s girl. Iosseliani offers up poignant observations about the clash of generations, factory life and romance in this witty moral tale of an individual’s resistance to oppression.
