Mandarinas, Zaza Urushadze, Estonia and Georgia, 2015
Original version with Spanish and English subtitles

The year is 1992, and civil war has broken out in Georgia amongst those who want to redraw the country’s borders. Although most of his compatriots have returned home to flee the fighting, Ivo, an old Estonian, decides to stay and help his friend Margus take in the tangerine harvest. Ivo tries to stay clear of the dangerous events that are happening nearby, but then two soldiers are hurt near his house and he must look after them. The two young men are on opposing sides, and the old man soon realises that the wounds which require healing are not only on their bodies.

A moving film that has received awards at many festivals speaks to us, with scrupulous respect, of love and fear of the other. The screenplay, humble but magnificent, the superb performances and the illuminating photography provide the architecture for a meditation on our place in life.
