As he flees to Armenia, he leaves many clues behing him for Anna to find him. This obliged journey in an unknown country will become for Anna what her father expected it to be : an initiatory journey, a sentimental training, a brand new adolescence... It's in a little village, lost in Caucasian mountains, that she finally finds him, seated under an abricot tree in blossom... She will doubt her identity, her love, her commitments.

Fun and well-done movie which conveys an important message to think about
28 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well-done, with fine sense of humor typical for Robert Guediguian and with great soundtrack music. I really enjoyed it. It's one of those movies that make you think over certain relationships and concepts without any dramatic turns or any pressure. It's pretty obvious that the movie is not just about a trip to some small country (as one of the reviewers suggested above) but about re- defining one's identity (and here I mean not just ethnic identity) and discovering a whole new world which at first may seem terrifying and crazy, but eventually leads to re-shaping old attitudes and stereotypes and finding lost roots and spirituality. In some ways, it's autobiographical, as Robert Guediguian is French-Armenian as the main personage, Anna, and I guess, it is his own personal story of discovering his roots and rethinking his relationship with his Armenian father. Overall, it's professionally done as any other movie by Robert Guediguian and is based on first-hand experience, thus is sincere and colorful.
