he film depicts 36 hours in the life of the young musician Gia who plays the timbal in the orchestra of T‘bilisi and is known for his friendliness as well as his regular delays. To him, spontaneous contacts with people seem more important than his work. Gia is an unadjusted dreamer who is incapable of finding a connection to time that harmonises with his environment. Iosseliani‘s film is reminiscent of the French Nouvelle Vague as well as the Czech New Wave. The film is set on original locations and is almost completely cast with amateur actors from Iosseliani‘s circle of friends.
