London Georgian Film Festival

UK Premiere


The new film from the Oscar-nominated director of Tangerines. Father Giorgi, a former film director, is sent to serve a small parish in a mountain village where the previous priest had died slightly mysteriously. To bring the villagers closer to the church, he starts having film nights and showing popular films. After the screening of the first picture – Some Like It Hot – the audience tell him that the local music teacher Lili looks like Marilyn Monroe. After meeting Lili, Father Giorgi’s balance between his role as cleric and the secular world starts to quiver – the woman is indeed extremely sexy and the temptation difficult to resist.
