Since Otar Left

A Feature film by Julie Bertuccelli

Produced by Les Films du Poisson

Release in France : 17/09/2003


    Leaving for France, Otar left three women behind, three different generations of one family, fighting hard to survive in today’s Tbilissi, Georgia. When the message of Otar’s sudden death arrives, his sister and niece decide to hide this from the grandmother, by writing letters and inventing him a happy life. This “white lie” will soon mix up everyone’s lives.
