Synopsis

Zaza (Ashkenazi), a 32-year-old Georgian living in Israel is forced to choose as his parents' plans for his arranged marriage are threatened by his passionate affair with Judith (Elikabetz), an older, divorced single mother. From such a dilemma - based on the director's own life - Dover Kasashvili explores the universal tension between individual desire and the duties of the bloodline: "love against love." He does it with impressive assurance as he negotiates audacious shifts in tone: starting as a deadpan comedy of manners, the film turns explicitly erotic and finally emotionally forceful for the morally sophisticated finale. Funny, tender, sexy and at times painfully tough, Late Marriage is an effective, complex exploration of passion and commitment.
