This story of an Armenian who becomes a famous French playwright, hiding or forgetting his humble origins, only to rediscover them through the genuine warmth and sincerity of simple people, is truly uplifting! An excellent cast, led by Claudia Cardinale and Omar Sharif, but including a number of fine actors unknown to me, present this thoughtful, intelligent script with conviction and honesty, with no need for language, nudity or violence to show the contrast between city and country people.
A treasure of a film that should be viewed with someone you love.
