End of Season (15*)

Azerbaijan/Georgia/Germany 2019 Dir Elmar Imanov 92 min


Mother Fidan, father Samir and son Machmud form an uneasy family unit in Baku, Azerbaijan, as each seeks independence and self-identity, yet feel trapped and unfulfilled. A dramatic incident at a family beach trip changes the family dynamic, and they are forced to evaluate their relationships to each other.

Elmar Imanov’s compelling debut features excellent performances from his cast, especially Mir-Movsum Mirzazade as the angry, vulnerable son. End of Season is an excellent study of alienation and mutual incomprehension, with echoes of Antonioni’s L’Avventura.
