'We are active participants in the creation of this (or any) work of cinema. And given how much this movie loves the movies, as well as dogs, music, children, soccer, ice cream, the ancient Georgian town of Kutaisi, and the very process of falling in love, there is something immensely hopeful and moving about being thus invited to collude.' - Jessica Kiang, Variety

'More than a romance, or a fairy tale about sentient security cameras, What Do We See When We Look at the Sky? is an ode to living in the moment and finding beauty in the familiar.' - Orla Smith, The Film Stage
'The camera often seems to capture seemingly quotidian moments, but Koberidze’s painterly eye elevates them to intimate flashes of poetry and delight.'Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter

In this seductively original urban fairytale, director Alexandre Koberidze starts with a simple love story and builds a quirkily unpredictable portrait of life in the beautiful Georgian city of Kutaisi. For Lisa and Giorgi, it’s love at first sight but although they agree to meet the next day, they are struck by a curse so they can no longer recognise each other. Life goes on as usual in their hometown, street dogs stray, the football world cup begins and a film crew on its quest to find true love might be what they need.

This film contains scenes of transphobia and references to sexual violence.
