My Grandmother and In Spring
This Soviet Georgian work matches any films of the French avant-garde for hilarious entertainment created through witty editing and an unforgettable musical track. A genuine piece of grotesquerie, descended from Gogol and the Soviet Eccentric cinema (FEKS), My Grandmother looks like “Franz Kafka Meets Charlie Chaplin”: a riotous, scathingly anti-bureaucratic satire taking in all kinds of advanced filmic devices like stop-motion, bits of puppetry and animation, and expressionist decor.
