Late Marriage is a 2001 movie about a Georgian-Jewish PhD student in Israel torn between his relationship with the woman he loves and his traditional Georgian family’s wishes. I won’t spoil it, but it ends terribly, terribly sadly. There are definitely some light funny moments, but fundamentally this is about traumatized people repeating the cycles of trauma. It also has the most absolutely realistic sex scene I’ve ever seen in a movie – not stylized or censored in any way. But oof, what a heartbreaking ending.
This movie is also notable for having part of the dialogue in Judaeo-Georgian, an endangered language of the Jewish community in and from Georgia – like many former Soviet countries, the significant majority of Georgia’s Jewish community has moved to Israel.
