A Chef in Love (1996) is a good Georgian film. Nominated for the foreign language film Oscar!

R2 That film sucked and even Georgians don't like it all that much. If you want to see movies that are considered cult classics in Georgia check out films like Mimino, The Wishing Tree, Blue Mountains, Repentance and Father of a Soldier.

I personally hated the last one (even if it is considered THE ultimate film classic by the locals) but the rest are all great.

R5 It may sound like that to you (probably because the pronunciation has been affected by the Russian language) but it's not an Indo-European language and it's also a language isolate, meaning there are no languages even remotely related to it in existence.

This thread has been up for 30 minutes and already we've had an ersatz critic of Georgian cinema and an armchair linguist weigh in.

Never change, DL.

R12 Yes, that was a great film. The lead actress is the daughter of a beloved folk singer Inola Gurgulia (who unfortunately died pretty young back in 1977). Check out her music on YT, it's great. Her daughter performed one of her mom's songs in the movie too.

R16, I found the music incredibly moving, so I did look it up after watching the movie. Thanks for the additional info!

Also, r7 isn't exactly right. There are other languages related to Georgian (the Kartvelian family). It's just that Georgian is by far the most widely spoken. What's fascinating about most of the Caucasian languages is that even ones that aren't in the same family have rubbed their nightmarish phonologies off on one another. The languages of the Caucasus all have some of the most difficult sounds in the world for non-natives to pronounce.

R20 I know that but those other languages are all nearly extinct so I just pretend they don't exist. I wouldn't make much of a scholar, huh?

I think Mkhedruli is one of the most beautiful scripts.

It does sound very guttural. I hear Tbilisi is a nice place, though.

Hi, Georgia!

I love that one pair male figure skater's last name. I believe he's Georgian -- Anton Sikhaluridze.
