THE ROMANTICISTS

Synopsis

The story is about Oscar, an Armenian actor who dreamed of going to Hollywood and becoming a celebrity for many years. Now he won a Green Card Lottery, and it seems his long-standing dream came true! But the good-bye party given for him by his teenage friends takes a completely different path: as a result, everything changes and chain of unpredicted and absurd events brings to a tragedy.

Directors statement
Armenia is not the country that could seem at first sight, especially to a foreigner. In order to get to know us, it is necessary to live here and communicate especially with the youth.

The youth living in Armenia today is the kid of 1990s who grew up in a period when the country was trying to survive without losing its individuality.

Being a part of USSR and not having independence through ages, after the collapse of USSR, Armenia found itself in a real chaos.

The heroes of our film are those very kids who saw earthquake and war, dark years and endless queues for a slice of black bread.

And today they live in a developing and prospering Armenia,they have got higher education and try to find their place in the society. Each of them is a bright individuality with his viewpoint and position.
