Rezo is a movie told and painted by Rezo Gabriadze, Georgian artist, writer and creator of Marionette theatre. The movie is an autobiographical animated documentary questioning ideas of deep humanity, kindness and heartiness during uneasy times after the 2nd World War.
At the Asia Pacific Screen Awards, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, (November 2018) I had the opportunity to view this film, which was in the nominations and finally won the award as Best Animated Feature film. I loved the film, and watched it a second time the following day. The structure is that an old man is being interviewed on camera by his son, and telling his childhood memories of growing up in rural Georgia USSR at the end of World War Two or The Great Patriotic War. From time to time we see the old gentle man on screen, smiling affectionately and telling with such immense charm and humour, the story of his youth, until he left to go to Moscow, where he later became famous in the creative arts. The animation is particularly unique in style, charming and the story is told always as though time were 'wound back' ---observations and interpretations of a very young child, then a teenager, then young man. The director of the film is his own son. What a superb tribute to a great and beautiful man. I cannot praise this film enough
