"Since Otar Left ..." is as delicate, precise and rich in nuance as those three dots that elegantly end its title. It's a wonderful film with a love of intimacy, an eye for potent small moments that can go by unobserved and a willingness to explore the emotional complications of family relationships.

Julie Bertuccelli readily admits that her first feature film, "Since Otar Left ... ," "is about me and my matriarchal family." Set in Tbilisi, Georgia, "Otar" deftly weaves a portrait of life in the struggling former Soviet republic with the tale of three generations of women living under one roof and longing for the absent son, Otar, who has immigrated to Paris with the hope of a better life.

From its very first frames, director Julie Bertuccelli's debut feature film, "Since Otar Left," is commanded by the performance of Esther Gorintin. A Polish-born 90-year-old living in France, Gorintin made her acting debut at age 85 in Emmanuel Finkiel's film "Voyages." Gorintin's on-screen presence is so natural and enveloping that it immediately raises the question of how many more films she might have lighted up had she found her way to the screen earlier in life.

The title character of "The Tree," a lyrical story of loss and longing, is a magnificent Moreton Bay fig. Like something out of a child's book illustration, it dominates an edge-of-the-world landscape on the far reaches of Brisbane, and in its sturdy labyrinth of welcoming arms an 8-year-old girl believes she can commune with her recently deceased father. Her brothers don't hear his voice, but everyone sees the drought-parched roots and heavy limbs invade the family home. French writer-director Julie Bertuccelli ("Since Otar Left")

Making a film that transports all the conceits that make a western a western — concerns about loyalty and family, tradition and honor — to a contemporary setting is mighty ambitious. Yet, with "Good Day for It," that's precisely the aim of director Nick Stagliano. Working from a screenplay he co-wrote with James Canfield Wolf, Stagliano follows a mysterious drifter with a past (Robert Patrick) who returns to a small town to meet the long-lost daughter he has never known, only to be confronted by unsavory former associates (a gang that includes Robert Englund and Lance Henriksen)
