A little word in the big world
4 March 2017 | by Vard_AntinyanSee all my reviews

This is a good movie folks. A group of blacksmiths working together in a triangular forge. Each of them has completely different personality and different attitude to life. But they are friends and have been working long together. Their story is told from their youngest member's perspective - Little Hovik, who is a school boy.

What fascinated me is that in parallel with their little local story we can feel the story of the big world in the background. The background story sometimes feels remote but some other times feels menacing the viewer.

I found that the movie is excellent in prompting opposite feelings in parallel. On one hand it's the feeling of comfort and humor that is related to this group of people and their daily life. But on the other hand we can see that they are actually vulnerable and impacted by the things happening in the big world (e. g. second world war or the appearance of first airplanes). Therefore, despite the subtle humor that we enjoy throughout the whole movie, it feels deeply sad sometimes.

The actors are giving stunning performances, and the direction is equally great. I highly recommend this movie.
