A masterful documentary by one of the most original contemporary film makers. I saw this film at the Berlin international film festival. It is a layered and incongruous work that captures the lives of the inhabitants of the country, most of them are the women of Armenia. It is also the story of a Canadian Armenian returning to her imagined homeland to see what it is really like. The film's images are at times surreal, at times melancholic, defiant and celebratory. Seeing it inspired me to visit the country. A complex and beautifully nuanced work. The editing is highly polished, the soundtrack moving, the camera work is outstanding. What draws you in above is the honesty of the images and director's iconoclastic vision.
