When the story takes first place
Zaza Urushadze gives the highest priority to his story. It’s a very powerful story carrying a strong antiwar massage. And Urushadze tells it as if he’s not there. As if we’re watching the actual events taking place before us. This isn’t a result of inaptness, this is a deliberate decision to let the story stand in the limelights on its own and avoid anything that could divert the viewers attention from it. You won’t find any elaborate shots, any amazing breathtaking sights, no fireworks showing the director’s technical mastery. Urushadze tells us about the follies of war and he makes sure that’s what we’ll get when we see his film. He’s aided by superb actors, mainly Lembit Ulfsak playing the strong minded Ivo, a man of few words that makes every word of his count. Reserved, strong willed and determined, a role calling for acting of the highest quality and Lembit Ulfsek is up to the task. In fact there’s nothing else to speak about regarding this movie, only the actors, and the director’s lean approach to cinematic story telling. Thing is, even when that’s all there is if it’s done at such level of perfection it’s a must see movie.
A remarkable piece of work
“Tangerines” is a war film quite unlike any other. It deals with the war in the Apkhazeti region of Georgia in 1990 and centres on an old man, a farmer growing tangerines, who gets caught up in the conflict. It’s a very simple picture and a very humanist picture. The old man, Ivo, and his neighbour Margus don’t want to take sides; the soldiers who die on their doorsteps are not enemies but simply other human beings, deserving of their care and respect. When two soldiers from opposing sides are wounded, Ivo tries to save both of them.
It’s a reasonably short film and it has the feel of a good short story and although set in the not-too-distant past it feels remarkably prescient, perhaps depressingly so for while the film deals with good people doing what they can for their fellow man, that goodness is not replicated elsewhere. A remarkable piece of work that should be mandatory viewing.
