A Piece of Sky
Կտոր մը երկինք

Nothing is easy for Torik, a shy orphan adopted by his aunt and uncle: he struggles to fit into village life, learn a craft, or find a wife. When Torik does fall in love – with Anjel, a local prostitute – he must face down the disapproval of his narrow-minded community and assert his right to happiness. One of Armenian master Henrik Malyan’s classic tragicomedies, which demonstrates his deep affection for his nation’s 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).
