"The world would be a much more peaceful place if ordinary people simply got to know one another."
This was an IMDb quote I saw describing The Iran Job, but the concept is reflected much more strongly in this Oscar-nominated foreign film. During the 1990s Georgia-Apkhazeti War, an old man ends up taking care of two wounded soldiers from opposite sides of the war in his home. Will they see the good in each other and calm down? So now you already know the movie is preachy, and there are 'famous last words' where you know a character is going to die any second. But still, the simpleness in how the story unfolds makes this a pleasurable watch.
PS: Maryam ... thank you for the directions!
