Georgians vote today in a parliamentary election that pits the ruling United National Movement party against Georgian Dream, led by the country’s richest man, Bidzina Ivanishvili.

One showing severe abuse by guards at a Georgian prison raised international outcry, while another showing politicians deciding the fate of the country over red wine and meat dumplings, seemed more like business as usual.
