  • And Then We Danced

    And Then We Danced

    ★★★★★

    Writer and director, Levan Akin, provides an immersive romance nestled in the tradition of Georgian dance. Merab (Levan Gelbakhiani) is incredibly self-disciplined, rushing between home, dance rehearsals and his restaurant job to make ends meet. Merab’s world changes when Irakli (Bachi Valishvili) enters the room as the ‘strange new boy’ who Merab can’t keep his eyes off. Transfixed by the man, it transpires that Irakli’s dance talent makes him Merab’s main dance rival. Their competitive streak runs parallel to their shared infatuation.

    I still have some issues with it… but can’t help but love it.

    Also: “I wrote it on piano somewhere between a blowjob and an omelette.”
