The remarkable run of new Georgian cinema continues with the dark, funny and uncompromising Scary Mother, in which a devoted housewife chooses her repressed passion for writing over her family. As Manana (Nata Murvanidze, who won the Best Actress prize at the Asia Pacific Screen Awards) nears the completion of her novel, the compulsion to create overtakes her maternal instincts. When she reads extracts of her novel to her incredulous family, they are hurt by the unflattering depictions and deem it pornography. But Manana is undeterred, and leaves the home to follow her artistic destiny.
