    As an Armenian-American aspiring filmmaker, I can say that this movie is a MASTERPIECE. Michael Goorjian had really done such an amazing job writing the script for it, directing the film and even starring in it. The Armenian culture in this movie is ACCURATELY AMAZING. I loved every single moments in this movie.

    This should've been nominated for the Oscars in the Best International Feature Film category. But I'm happy that this is the very first Armenian movie that made at least in the shortlist.

    Besides Michael Goorjian, the rest of the Armenian cast had really brought their A-game throughout the film and I really recommend this to all Armenians out there.

    Must see movie
    It was one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. I watched it twice with my family. I can't explain or put into words how good it was. The story is about an Armenian guy and what happened to him with the Russians during Stalin times. They don't make movies like this. It's an important topic that needs to be discussed and more stories like this needs to be shared. There was so many different emotions sadness and humor in it. The cast was mainly Armenian actors written/directed by Michael A. Goorjian. The music in it is amazing and it is actually shot in Armenia.🇦🇲 Loved it two thumbs up. Please go see/buy rent the movie.
