Tangerines

War Drama


 

Civil war in Georgia 1990, an Estonian man has stayed behind to harvest his crops of tangerines.

An extraordinary movie set about a ruthless civil conflict. "Tangerines" stands out as a war drama for its focus on the humanity of the characters, from ruthless mercenaries to farmers. Brotherhood and hatred are thrown together by the situation and we start questioning what is gained by fighting. This is an anti-war film after all, and it becomes apparent to the audience as we watch the climax in horror, that guns and hatred are not the answer. Pithy, sour and sweet.
