An excellent masterpiece reflecting the harsh reality of post soviet Armenia
26 January 2008 | by nareksSee all my reviews

Whoever gave this title less than 8 stars has clearly never lived in post Soviet Armenia to understand the dark humor behind the thought provoking dialogs and monologues in this masterpiece. The depth and satire hidden behind every scene can be re-explored by watching the play over and over again, and the hilarious and at the same time tragic story of poet Hamazasp take you for an unforgettable emotional journey. The acting is unbelievable, and if you want to criticize the not-very-appealing decorations and poor special effects, try to put together a play of this magnitude with a non-existing budget. This is a must watch for all Armenians born in Armenia and everyone else who is able to make the effort to think outside of the box.
