dir. Hiner Saleem, France/Italy/Switzerland/Armenia, 2003. 88mins. PG
This charmingly dry comedy tells a love story set in a remote Kurdish village in Armenia, before the fall of the USSR. Hamo, an elderly widower, has a second chance at love when he meets Nina, herself a widow.
A plethora of colourful characters populate this delightful film with humanity and humour; outside the landscape is breathtakingly beautiful. Unmissable.
