Description:
A tender, eccentric comedy with a fantastic plot twist, Koberidze's second feature depicts love at first sight, football and a stray dog.

A chance encounter at the gates of a school in Kutaisi, Georgia. Lisa and Giorgi bump into each other. Clearly dazed, they arrange a date without even having told each other their names. It is love at first sight, but, as if enchanted, the lovers are cursed, condemned to wake up the next day looking completely different. But it is precisely this supernatural obstacle to them meeting again that becomes their ticket to a world ruled entirely by the magic of the everyday. Their blind search for each other takes place against the backdrop of an ancient city that miraculously comes to life, Gianna Nannini's Magic Nights, the 90' World Cup Italy anthem, and the juggling with the cinematic means of expression that actively engage the viewer.

"One evening, late at night, I was asking myself what sort of films I want to make. I decided that I wanted my next few films to be fairy tales. I read a lot of fairy tales, and then started writing a script for a film. When reading a lot of fairy tales, you see that anything can happen, and you feel much freer than you did before. That's a nice way to think about folklore, as something that releases you from the restriction of having to stick to the rules of reality." (Alexandre Koberidze)
