Levan Akin's beautiful and gripping love-story AND THEN WE DANCED launched in Directors Fortnight at Cannes. Set against the backdrop of Georgia's traditional dance scene, the film follows an obsessive young dancer Merab (Levan Gelbakhiani), who has been training at the National Georgian Ensemble with his partner, Mary (Ana Javakishvili), since he was a child. Merab's world is turned upside down, when the carefree and charismatic Irakli (Bachi Valishvili) arrives, rivalry soon turns to longing as the two draw closer together.

An instantly engaging tale of a young male dancer’s sexual awakening in contemporary Tbilisi, And Then We Danced is personal and political, romantic and educational.

No good performance can hide the fact that what happens during roughly the first hour is perhaps beautifully laid out and told but also extremely familiar. There is an expectation that Akin, also credited with the screenplay, will somehow step it up in the second half with a new twist or unexpected insight. But quite the opposite happens, as the narrative becomes both more melodramatic and erratic.

And Then We Danced works because of a tender and heartfelt performance by Levan Gelbakhiani.
