Under-appreciated clash of cultures with a touch of romance
27 July 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie occurs for the most part in Armenia and in Armenian, so subtitles are a given. I have no idea how realistic Armenian village life is portrayed, or how serious the threats that exist in border areas, but it is at least as plausible as the nonsense that the big budget Hollywood movies routinely dish up.

All that aside, the movie engaged me from the very beginning, with characters who were not only driving the movie forward, but who had clear motivations for their actions. Although the plot line was simple enough, it was the characters that made the movie more than watchable. I will also add a special mention for the music, which was neither too little nor too much, and reinforced the point that in the movie, America is a distant land. It is not a criticism of the movie, but at its conclusion I was left with a feeling that there ought to be a novel on which the movie was based (or vice versa) which would go into more detail on the political and culture issues that were only hinted at.

Overall, nicely done, and, of course, Angela Sarafyan as Ani is perfectly lovely.
