    Favorites of the Moon
    Director Otar Iosseliani hit the nail on the head when describing Favorites of the Moon as "an abstract comedy." Indeed, if ten different people who saw the film were asked to describe the plot, there would be ten different answers. All would agree, however, that the storyline is contingent upon two inanimate objects: an 18th-century chinaware set, and a 19th-century nude portrait. The dozens of characters inextricably linked to these two items are drawn from social circles ranging from chi-chi art lovers to unscrupulous terrorists. The film's original title was Les Favoris de la Lune (no lie!) ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
