Georgian director Géla Babluani's artful shocker 13 (Tzameti) was one of the best movies of 2005. His latest, co-directed with his father Témur, is a more oblique drama about social and cultural misunderstanding.

Three French tourists find themselves in a remote Georgian village where an old man is about to sacrifice himself in a long-running blood feud. This is as fatalistic as 13, though not as taut or tense; the ending seems utterly inconsequential.
