Acclaimed anti-war drama Tangerines on Blu-ray & DVD in January
14 January 2015
Oscar and Golden Globe nominated for Best Foreign Language Film, Zaza Urushadze's Tangerines [Mandariinid] is a powerful and eloquent plea for peace and a poignant statement on the futility of violence stemming from racial and ethnic divisions.
Set in 1992, during the growing conflict between Georgia and Abkhazian separatists in the wake of the Soviet Union’s dissolution, this compassionate story focuses on two Estonian immigrant farmers who refuse to flee Georgia, staying on to harvest their tangerine crop. When the fighting arrives on his doorstep, Ivo treats two wounded soldiers from opposite sides. During their extended period of convalescence under Ivo’s roof, the enemies are forced not only to confront the reasons that fuel their hatred for each other, but also the conflict which rages around them.
Described by Twitch Film "imaginative and profoundly touching… the final effect is truly stunning" and The Wall Street Journal as "magnificent...remarkable piece of anti-war cinema," Tangerines will be released on UK Blu-ray and DVD on 25th January 2015 by Axiom Films at the RRP of £19.99 for the Blu-ray and £15.99 for the DVD.
