"The richly deserving winner of the grand prize in the International Critics Week at Cannes 2004, SINCE OTAR LEFT is an exquisitely bittersweet drama set in Tbilisi, the crumbling capital of the post-Soviet republic of Georgia. Three generations of women - the stoically beautiful Ada (Dinara Droukarova), her lusty mother Marina (Nino Khomassouridze) and whip-smart grandmother Eka (Esther Gorintin) - live together in a book-filled apartment. When news comes that Marina's brother Otar has been killed while on the job in France, Marina and Ada decide to conceal his death rather than break Eka's heart. Yet their lie soon spawns larger and larger ones. Wise and perfectly judged, French director Julia Bertuccelli's feature debut hits all the right marks." Jason Anderson, EYE WEEKLY (Toronto, Sept 2003)
