Monday Morning

Directed by Otar Iosseliani

Winner of the Silver Bear for Best Direction and the International Critics Prize at the 2002 Berlin Film Festival, MONDAY MORNING is a brilliant Tati-esque satire about one man’s encounter with the frustrations of modern life. After years of the same daily routine – long ride to work, boring factory job, claustrophobic home life – Vincent decides to escape to Venice. Maybe there he’ll find his real life… In his near silent comedy, Iosseliani employs a dry, observational style to depict an almost surreal world, revealing life’s absurdities with comic relish.
