Მონანიება

Abuladze’s highly acclaimed black comedy follows the bizarre happenings of a small Georgian town, in which the corpse of the deceased mayor keeps being dug up after reburial. A woman eventually comes forward and confesses, and her testimony, told in flashbacks, forms the body of the proceeding narrative, where we learn of the personal horrors she and her family have had to face at the hands of the local leader.
