Storyline

Today, Mel Divan is a successful American businessman with a terminal illness. But long ago he was an infamous criminal who escaped from a mental institution in Communist Armenia. With the rise of capitalism, Mel returns to Armenia to make good on a promise to deliver the bounty of his robbery to the widow of a fellow thief. Mel plans on spending only enough time in Armenia to locate the widow. But nostalgia and fate drive him, as the same mental institution from which he escaped is now on the auction block. Mel buys it and finds refuge in running the psychiatric hospital while living among its eclectic residents and helping each in a unique way. Mel will live his final days as a saint provided he can keep one step ahead of the Chief Psychiatrist and a local Mob Boss. Written by Anonymous

Self-redemption through catharsis
28 September 2002 | by (Anaheim, California) – See all my reviews

Chaldranyan has succeeded in uplifting Armenian cinema, which has terribly deteriorated during the 90's, to world class level. Marco Ferreri's influence is highly palpable. Official Academy Award submission of Armenia for Best Foreign Film. The film itself is a self-redemption of Armenian cinema, which has always been absent from all major international film festival scenes, along with the prevailing situation in current Armenian history, either political or socio-economical. An open invitation and an outburst call to all the dormant Armenian souls around the world to wake up and rejuvenate through catharsis for a brighter cinematic future. He that hath an ear, let him hear.
