Blackbird Blackbird Blackberry, dir. Elene Naveriani, Switzerland / Germany / Georgia 2023, 110 min., Georgian with English subtitles

Etero (a sensitive performance by Eka Chavleishvili) is a self-contented shop owner and blackberry forager in a small Georgian town. Happily single in her late ’40s, she never expected to feel a sudden surge of desire for one of the local men. Director Elene Naveriani (Wet Sand) has created a deliciously shrewd and refreshing portrait of a woman who doesn’t want, or need, to conform.
