Pastorale

Film

Time Out says

A turgid and occasionally twee account of a string quartet holidaying in (Soviet) Georgia. A hint of romance, a touch of the travelogues, a surfeit of lyrical shots, and a lot of chamber music. Running into trouble, apparently because of its 'formalist aesthetic', it was not released to the West until 1982, when it was shown at the Berlin and London festivals: not the best of choices, even considering the generally dismal contemporary output of Soviet cinema.
