Gza shinisaken (1981) AKA The Way Home


The film is set in southern Georgia, which until the end of XIX century was dominated by the Ottoman Empire. Tragic times gave rise to people of high spiritual strength, such as Antimoz Iverieli – the philosopher-educator. Having experienced as a child cruelty and injustice, it becomes the path of public service. Having been removed by the Turks in Romania, a hero by all means wants to return home. Sentenced to death, Antimoz remains in the memory of his countrymen a champion of justice.

    Nice film but is this a Georgian language film with a Russian narration/dub over the top? If so is there a Georgian only version available?

      I’m pretty sure this is the only version available of this film, hopefully it will released without the voice over in the future.
