Was sehen wir, wenn wir zum Himmel schauen?

A film by Alexandre Koberidze.

[Credits] [Termine] [Trailer]

A chan­ce encoun­ter at the gates of a school in Kutaisi in Georgia. Lisa and Giorgi bump into each other and a book falls to the ground. Clearly dazed, they arran­ge a date without even having told each other their names. It is love at first sight and, as if enchan­ted, things begin to come to life: the sur­veil­lan­ce came­ra beco­mes an evil eye, the drain­pipe an ora­cle, they clo­se their eyes and – ding! 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 which beco­mes their ticket to a world ruled ent­i­re­ly by the magic of the ever­y­day – in all its simp­le beau­ty, ten­der come­dy and an enthu­si­asm for foot­ball that infects young and old ali­ke, even the phleg­ma­tic street dog Vardy.
As in Let the Summer Never Come Again, it is the poe­try of aim­less­ness that enab­les Alexandre Koberidze to make visi­ble and nar­ra­t­a­ble in cine­ma ever­ything that we rare­ly per­cei­ve in the rea­li­ty of our ever­y­day lives. Get your ligh­ters out becau­se, as Gianna Nannini is allo­wed to sing so fer­vent­ly in this gem of a film, the nights are inde­ed magical.
