My Review: I absolutely loved the movie! I don't know if it's because I wished I'd be able to go to Armenia and take wonderful pictures that would be published in a magazine telling others about the importance of our independence.... or if it's because it's a cute love story. Either way, I think everyone involved in making this movie did an incredible job. Eve (the girl) was living the typical life we all live in America. She had a waitressing job, and had boyfriends here and there but always felt there was something missing in her life. To the regular person, she looked happy, and her life seemed complete...but there was a void in her life. She was not happy. I think Sona Tatoyan (Eve) did a great job and expressing the change in Eve once she was in Armenia. In Armenia, Eve seemed different. She had this "life" to her, whereas in America she seemed "blah". I don't know if that's me reading into things more than I'm supposed to, but I really felt that it was supposed to show us something. (I guess we all see what we WANT to see.. hehehe).
The movie makes you laugh and cry, and teaches you about making certain sacrifices to make your life "better". Eve decided to stay in Armenia and marry the guy she fell in love with (despite all their differences). Her soul was a lot more happier in Armenia.. and she had the guts to do something about it, rather than continue living like a robot in America. I just hope we can all one day do the same. :)
If anyone is in L.A., go see this movie in Glendale... I'm not sure where else it's playing.
p.s.- expect a log from me, writing from Armenia, in the near future! ;)
