Trivia

Rubik Khachikyan's character was supposed to be from Leninakan but composer Giya Kancheli wanted another Armenian city, Dilizhan, to be mentioned in the film because he wrote his symphonies there. Georgiy Daneliya objected, saying Dilizhan was a resort while Leninakan was a city of workers. In order to persuade Daneliya to relocate Rubik's residence to Dilizhan, Kancheli even bribed Daneliya with his new jacket. See more »

6 September 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

for Vakhtang Kikabidze performance, one of Soviet cinema legends . for the music. and for the game with national identity details. nostalgic, fresh, warm, it is testimony of a time and proof of a kind of freedom. show of small things, picture of cultural misunderstandings, story of honest man in big city, it is not exactly a comedy but bitter reflection to sense of desire. moral lesson, like many other films of period, it is, today, nostalgic view of self - definition. beautiful images of Georgia, streets of Moscow, silhouette of churches, meetings and troubles, the secondary characters of village, the people of city, the cow in air and the adorable Hachikian in Frunzik Mkrchyan are parts of touching entertainment. In this conditions, Mimino remains a bright face of a period , poetic, childish and really precious.
