What Do We See When We Look at the Sky?

150' - 2021 - Drama, Romance - Dialogue: Georgian
Director: Alexandre Koberidze Composer: Giorgi Koberidze With: Giorgi Ambroladze, Giorgi Bochorishvili, Irina Chelidze, Ani Karseladze, Vakhtang Panchulidze
What Do We See When We Look at the Sky? is a kafkaesk love tale in which Alexandre Koberidze combines melancholy, magic and deep feelings.

It’s love at first sight when Lisa and Giorgi meet by chance on a street in the Georgian city of Kutaisi. Love strikes them so suddenly; they even forget to ask each other’s names. Before continuing on their way, they agree to meet the next day. Little do they know that an evil eye casts its spell on them. Will they manage to meet again? And if they do, will they know who they are? Life goes on as usual in their hometown, street dogs stray, the soccer world cup begins and a film crew on its quest to find true love might be what they need.

"At its most elementary level, Koberidze has made an epic-feeling romance. The film is set over the summer season in Kutaisi, west of the Georgian capital, Tbilisi, an ancient provincial town that’ll become obsessed with soccer as the World Cup unfurls over the summer. The addition of just a few lo-fi supernatural touches allow for small details from everyday lives to shine as brightly as the well-polished armor of a fairy-tale prince. And a necessary dose of cinema and the magic it can bestow comes through the parallel adventures of two middle-aged filmmakers — played, in a perfect meta touch, by the director’s parents — who are looking for couples for a new project." - The Hollywood Reporter
