Kurdish filmmaker Hiner Saleem's breakout comedy is a bleakly funny and
mordantly surreal snapshot of life in the frostbitten badlands of
post-Soviet Armenia. An elderly man (Romen Avinian) is one of the only
residents left in a snowy community that boasts beautiful vistas but no
kind of economic infrastructure. When he runs across a widow (Lala
Sarkissian) at the town cemetery, he wonders if she might help him to
alleviate his boredom, but shyness forestall him from making a move.
"Visually ravishing! A tribute to just how rapturous life can be" (Time
Out New York). Armenian, Russian, and Kurdish with English subtitles.
