Today I am grateful to a Soviet and post-Soviet director of Georgian extraction Georgi Daneliya. I have read his two books of memoirs and am now watching his films (some – for the first time, others – for the thousandth time). My favourite film of his is Kin-Dza-Dza! It’s absolutely genius, one of the best and most profound films in world cinema.
