One of Henrik Malyan’s classic comedies with a deep affection for Armenian history.

I didn’t fast forward not even once!
I honestly wasn't expecting to watch 'A Piece of Sky' in its entirety! It was good to watch a classic film in Western Armenian dialect. It has a poignant beginning but a Richard Curtis 'they all lived happily ever after' kind of ending.

Part of Armenian nostalgia
This film is truly part of the Armenian nostalgia. As I grew up, my family shouted film quotes from movies from A Piece of Sky. For example the infamous "Grikor Agha"! This film is printed into the minds of Armenian people, and Frunzik too! Would recommend to watch this movie, mixed with joy and sadness (just like the Armenian people).
