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 »

Quotes

Rubik Khachikyan: The truck got stolen.
Valentin Mizandari: What do you mean stolen? Are you sure this is where you parked it?
Rubik Khachikyan: What do you mean am I sure? A woman was smoking next to that garbage bin over there.
Valentin Mizandari: Rubik stay here, don't let anyone go in or out, get the trails. I'll go get the police.
Rubik Khachikyan: Tell them that the truck got stolen, it was brand new!

The best movie ever made
4 March 2002 | by (Stamford, CT) – See all my reviews

No movie has ever captured so well the feelings of love and sorrow, pride and fairness as this one. And, mind you, not through the stupid didactics or a trivial calculatable formula. No other movie has such a synergy of fundamental humanity ideas, screenplay, directon, actors performance, music and cinematography.

This movie is a peak for the most of its participants - never again they've achieved such an excellence!
