Directed by Otar Iosseliani • 1961 • USSR/Georgia
Iosseliani’s debut follows a young couple’s search for the perfect place to share a kiss. They soon find themselves a small, sparse flat whose kitchen taps, lights and cooker flare up in appreciation of their love, though trouble soon arrives in the form of a mystery man bearing unnecessary furniture and ornaments. As the lovers’ home becomes more and more cluttered, they seem to drift further and further from each other.
