A wonderful film with great actors. Most Russians can still remember the catchphrases from this film. Have just been reading a book on Frunzik Mkrtchian (the Armenian roommate of Mimino). Considered the Armenian Chaplin, he played many roles in tens of films. The films directed by his brother Albert Mkrtchian are excellent. I watched his film 'Tango nashego detstvo' (Tango of our childhood) which was superb. An Armenian version of Fellini's 'Amarcord'.
