Gardens in Autumn
Directed by Otar Iosseliani, France / Russia 2007
114 mins. French dialogue with English sub-titles
A lazy politician is forced to resign and has to adapt to a more humble life, finding old friends and pleasures.  A joyous satire, poetic and surreal by turns, from one of the world's most individual film-makers.
What the Critics say:
"Subtle, slily subversive and boasting countless delightful sight-gags, this is absurdist/surrealist movie-making at its most poetic, stoic and sceptical of political change."  (Geoff Andrew - Time Out)
