Melodies extols quintessentially Soviet virtues, such as socialism and hard work, through a tale that evidently has its origins in folklore. The film’s Soviet context is intoned with distinctly Georgian music and dance, featuring a stunning performance from Sofiko Chiaureli, ‘Melodies of the Vera Quarter’ is a celebration of Georgian culture’s vibrancy.
