We Are Our Mountains
Մենք ենք, մեր սարերը

When a petty dispute over a lost sheep gets out of hand, a group of shepherds find their mountain idyll interrupted by the long arm of the law in Henrik Malyan’s cult Soviet satire, adapted from his own work by beloved Armenian author Hrant Matevosyan. Matevosyan’s comic pastorale, alternately absurdist and broad, is brought to life by an all-star cast, including Frunzik Mkrtchyan and Sos Sargsyan. Often cited as the greatest Armenian film ever made, We Are Our Mountains is both charming and cutting in its commentary on the relationship between centre and periphery, state and individual.

Wonderful film
Great cast and dialogue. The small ensemble of actors were superbly cast. My first Armenian film, glad I caught it.
