29. LATE MARRIAGE
dir. Dover Kosashvili
world premiere 2001
U.S. release 2002
Because most films that take such surprising views of sexuality make a more grandiose show of Challenging
Ideas of Sexuality, and most avatars of a rarely filmed culture are a little more averse to such acerbic, harsh portrayals, no
matter how funny and oddly affectionate. Kosashvili works so unfussily that many of the film's heroic idiosyncrasies only gradually reveal themselves.
