    Learned to really appreciate georgian dance and understand the importance of tradition in this country. Passionate and full of life, it shows the oppresion the LGTBQ+ community faces in Georgia. A violent manifestation took place during the first screening of this movie in Georgia with sadly proves the point it's trying to make.

    Well done, emotional and meaningful. Great dance numbers and a heartfelt forbidden relationship story in the former Soviet occupied Georgia.

    And Then We Danced isn't the most original story, but it's important in the context of its country. It's not well edited at all, but it's uniformly well-acted, and the central character is the highlight, especially following his inner journey was powerful. The film is sweet and moving in those wordless scenes, which are easily the best ones, while the others suffered in comparison. The traditional/modern dance dichotomy is another highlight here.

    A brilliant cast of newcomers deliver captivating performances. The closer the camera gets, the more effective they are. This is not a "usual coming out story," but a very individual version of a journey taken by many. There are no big announcements in this film or happily-ever-afters. Nobody grows magic golden hearts; but a couple of characters reveal the depth of heart they've always had, but might not have shown before.

    What people need to know about this film is that it is a gay romance involving two males. That was not clear to me from the description, nor from what I saw of the trailer (I don't think I watched all of the trailer). While I like to think I am open-minded, I was totally not expecting this kind of romance. The mismatch between what I was expecting and what I actually got definitely detracted from my enjoyment of the film. Even setting aside my surprise at the content of the story, the story itself ultimately felt somewhat unsatisfying and disappointing. I guess I was hoping for more for the characters involved. Nonetheless, the film is well made and I found it interesting up to and including the ending. As an American, I was especially interested in getting a glimpse of Georgian life and culture that I am unlikely to ever experience myself.

    A happy ending with both of the lovers leaving Tbilisi would have been much better.

    What a beautiful and refreshing treat this film is, the most heartfelt and sensitive film about love and attraction since "Call Me By Your Name". The scene between the young dancer and his brother who defended him is unforgettable. It says more about what love is than just about anything you are likely to see.
