Meine glückliche Familie

A Film by Nana Ekvtimishvili, Simon Gross,

On the evening of her 52nd bir­th­day, Georgian lite­ra­tu­re tea­cher Manana unex­pec­ted­ly announ­ces to her fami­ly that she is lea­ving. She has been mar­ried for 30 years and lives in a three-bedroom flat in Tbilisi with her hus­band, par­ents, two child­ren and her son-in-law.

The mem­bers of her fami­ly repre­sent three genera­ti­ons and are com­ple­te­ly dif­fe­rent from each other: Manana’s hus­band Soso (55); their daugh­ter Nino (24), who is mar­ried and ado­res her hus­band Vakho (27); Manana’s son Lasha (20); Manana’s mother Lamara (72), the pil­lar of the fami­ly who takes care of ever­y­bo­dy; and Manana’s father Otar (80), who after a long and exhaus­ting life, dreams of death which seems slow in com­ing. Initially, the fami­ly don’t take Manana’s decisi­on serious­ly. But then she packs her suit­ca­se and lea­ves. The fami­ly is sho­cked and inc­redu­lous: whe­re is she going? Who upset her? She is past ‚divor­ce age‘ after all, and has a good hus­band who doesn’t drink, take drugs or beat her.
