INVASION
A film by Dito Tsintsadze
A/D 2012, 99 min

 

Joseph is an elderly man in his mid-fifties and just lost his beloved wife. He remains lonely and isolated in his old Villa, where everything painfully reminds him of the past. One day some visitors turn up unexpectedly, who appear to be relatives of his deceased wife. At the beginning, the uninvited guests support Joseph with loving care, but bit by bit the situations starts to change. The friendly visitors are slowly becoming hostile, aggressive invaders.

They try to get rid of Joseph and occupy his house, his world, his thoughts. Is this just the paranoia of an old man or really a brutal invasion?
