In a remote, isolated village in post-Soviet Armenia, Hamo, a widower with a pitiful pension and three worthless sons, travels daily to his wife's grave. There he meets the lovely Nina, who is communing with her late husband. The two are penniless--she works in a local bar that is about to close down, while he has been forced to start selling his meager possessions. All seems hopelessly bleak, yet as Hamo begins to court Nina, their unexpected union revitalizes them. Written by

The reality of the most miserable places of Armenia. Beautiful landscapes whose beauty is just comparable to the poverty of the people that lives there. The dismantling of the Sovietic Union left too many people to fate.
"Vodka Lemon" is basically a contemplative movie, it's so poetic and the photography is just awesome. Maybe the development of some of the characters is rather random, and those who like to see some action will probably dislike "Vodka". Some may think that in "VL" does not happen anything... but that's not true. It's just that the things that happen in this movie are so small, the people that the story is about are so insignificant... but hey, that's life.
