Line of Credit is an ironic, bleakly comic drama about sliding down the economic scales in post-Soviet Georgia. Nino, a fortysomething woman from a well-off family, is finding it hard to make ends meet while keeping up appearances. Selling off the family jewels to keep creditors at bay, she’s constantly having to find new ways of borrowing money. Shot in beautiful widescreen tableaux, with a message about the 170,000 Georgian families who have lost their homes over the past five years, this a brilliant take on shifting socialmores and fortunes in the shadow of Russia.
