WINTER SONG

A film by Otar Iosseliani
World premiere date: August 9, 2015, Festival del Film Locarno
French release date: November 25, 2015

Resemblances can be unnerving.

Such as the one between
the viscount who went, puffing on his pipe, to the guillotine during the Terror,
the army chaplain who has a brigand's tattoos on his chest and is a compulsive baptizer of soldiers, pillagers and rapists,
the Parisian down-and-out left as flat as a pancake by an encounter with a steamroller,
and, last but not least, the cultivated concierge—and occasional arms dealer—in an upscale building.

Almost all the film's characters meet in that very building except, of course, the homeless, who are carted by the cops from pillar to post.

Yet amid all this chaos,
there are dream spaces, love stories and solid friendships
that perhaps allow us to hope that tomorrow will be better than today.
