LET THE SUMMER NEVER COME AGAIN, Alexandre Koberidze, 2017, 202 min., Georgian
Alexandre Koberidze films an utopian dream with his cell phone camera. A young man sets out to become a dancer, a policeman means to guard him from prostitution. Together they meander through the dreamlkie urban Tibilisi, dodging dangerous occurences, lovingly and reminiscing — of the war, of their roots, of unfulfilled promises.
Confronting the cinematic image is always associated with a certain loss of control. The avantgarde could not have made this relation more explicit. What makes our heads spin, we ask, and what state of mind is vertigo?
