A film by Zaza Urushadze

2015 Academy Award & Golden Globe Award Nominee for Best Foreign Language Film

87 minutes, fiction, color, 2014

Tangerines is a story of awakening humanity in the midst of violence, told with intimacy and elegance by writer/director Zaza Urushadze. Tangerines is the spare, yet haunting tale of an older Estonian man who cares for two wounded soldiers from opposite sides of the 1990s-era war in Georgia. The film reveals compassion to be the ultimate response to centuries of political, cultural and ethnic conflict, a compelling and relevant message for contemporary audiences.

“Zaza Urushadze's triumph is to extract a tough-minded, lucid, even gravely beautiful drama from this panorama of Eurasian chaos. Tangerines has the emotional force and intelligence to break through apathy and ignorance.” - Film Comment

“A modestly magnificent fable of enemies in a time of war. This remarkable piece of antiwar cinema honors its theme, and the movie medium.” - Wall Street Journal

“Urushadze has performed a small miracle by presenting the insanity of war in such a compact form.” -

“Powerful... Lembit Ulfsakis exceptional.” - Los Angeles Times

“Deeply affecting. Sure to touch viewers who see it.” - The Hollywood Reporter
