He then disappears, leaving her pregnant. Her father Safar and brother Nasreddin set out to find the culprit and restore the family's honour. From inside the womb, Khabibulla, who was conceived on that miraculous night, provides a commentary on the incredible adventures and bizarre mishaps that befall the threesome on their search for his father. A fantastic trip through the wild landscapes of Central Asia in which tradition and superstitution clash with the chaos of the post-modern world.--Container

"A bizarre riverbank in fog and snow. Bits of steel and concrete are strewn all around. The skeleton of a skyscraper. Unfinished motorway bridges in a flat landscape. The giant figure of a metal horse. And a statue of Lenin whose outstretched right arm points into nothingness. A cold, ossified no man's land where the washed-up past meets an imagined future. People drift aimlessly through this surreal world. Old certainties no longer count, friends and relatives have disappeared, ideals have been blown away by the wind. Returning home from abroad, Sasha--whose dead father used to own this building site - now has to deal with his legacy: a Kyrgyz worker who is searching his colleagues; an architect with glowing red skin on his forehead; a tour-guide who once stood next to Yeltsin at the barricades in Moscow. Some of them have unexplained nosebleeds. A young student asks: 'Who are we? Who am I? Everything is in chaos.' In seven episodes Alexey German Jr. condenses the spiritual state of his country into a symbolic film of long sequences, a fluidly choreographed dance of people and the camera"--https://www.berlinale.de/en/archiv

"Alexi leaves the house of his father and stepmother and rents an apartment. He wants to be independent and find his place in the world. But no basic changes ensue-- he has the same friends, with the same trivial conversations and the same inactivity. Only the death of his favorite teacher, to whom the young man felt very close, really changes his habitual way of life. Alexi makes a decision: he refuses a place at a research institute and leaves for a teaching job at a village school, the same school his mentor used to work at."--Http://sovietmovies.blogspot.com/2011/05/aleqsandre-rekhviashvili-sapekhuri-aka.html

"Lena ist heimatlos. In der Grossstadt konnte sie nicht Fuss fassen, am Land ist sie längst nicht mehr zu Hause und die grosse, weite Welt, die sie angeblich als Kellnerin auf einem Kreuzfahrtschiff bereist hat, kennt sie nur vom Horensagen. Das Begräbnis des Grossvaters ist ihr nun Anlass und Vorwand zugleich, ins Dorf zurückzukehren, in der Hoffnung, vielleicht doch hier ihren Platz im Leben zu finden."--Container

Der Film, der in der Zeit von "Glasnost" und "Perestroika" gedreht wurde, ist eine bitterböse, teils grotesk-satirische Abrechnung mit dem Stalinismus einerseits und einem weltweit verbreiteten Faschismus andererseits. Abuladses Antiheld Warlam erinnert an Mussolini und Hitler, zugleich aber auch an Stalin und dessen Geheimdienstchef Berija. Der Regisseur verfremdet die realistische Ebene seines Films immer wieder mit symbolbefrachteten Traumbildern und surrealen Einfällen. 1987 wurde DIE REUE in Cannes mit mehreren Preisen ausgezeichnet
