Levan Akin’s joyful, romantic and transgressive film is his take of merging Sweden’s traditional dance culture with the conditioned homophobia of its people. It was initially aired on the Cannes Film Festival in 2019 and later attracted viewers for its Academy Award nomination.
Meerab – a gifted dancer – has effete posturing that enrages his coach. Meerab, while being aware of his countrymen’s hyperconservative social restraints finds himself attracted to Irakli (a handsome new dancer). As their continued affair places their dance careers on a pedestal, the movie develops a non-confirmative narrative that is far from the madding crowd.
