Tzameti is the Georgian word for thirteen. 13 Tzameti is a thriller, in which an unfortunate young man is transformed into Contestant No. 13 with no way out to save his luck. 22-year-old Sebastien (Georges Babluani) leads an impoverished life, constantly struggling to support his immigrant family. While repairing the roof of a neighbor's house, he overhears a conversation about an expected package that is promised to make the household rich.
Sensing the opportunity of a lifetime, Sebastien intercepts the package, which contains a series of specific instructions. Following the clues, he assumes a false identity and manages to slip through the grasp of the police as he ventures deeper and deeper into the countryside. The closer he gets to his destination and the more people he meets along the way, the less he understands about what he is looking for. Ultimately, he comes face to face with a ring of clandestine gamblers placing bets on the outcome of a multi-player, high-stake tournament of Russian roulette.
The film won the World Cinema Jury Prize at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival. It also won 2 awards at the 62nd Venice Film Festival.
