hilarious
13 October 2013 | by sounik1See all my reviews

I thought this movie was brilliant: it's hard to lightly/humorously cover culture clash/romance/history/conflict all in one entertaining film, but this one does it. It's light and funny, it cuts through the more 'complicated' scenes that talk about the conflict between Turkey/Azerbaijan and Armenia with truth & humor, and most importantly, it tells a lighthearted, funny story about being (literally) thrown into a foreign culture.

It was entertaining, funny, and beautifully shot. It completely transports the viewer to not only a different country, but also engages the viewer in the protagonist AND the antagonists at the same time. Brilliantly written.

At the end of the day, what more can we ask for from a film?
