Vodka Lemon

Kurdish filmmaker Hiner Saleem earned critical comparisons to Fellini, Kusturica, Iosseliani, and Kaurismaki with this breakout comedy. A whimsical, funny and mordantly surreal snapshot of life in the frostbitten badlands of post-Soviet Armenia where a poor widower and father tries to make ends meet while raising three difficult children. While visiting his wife's grave, he encounters a beautiful woman there who is grieving for her dead husband. When the two strike up an unexpected relationship, can they find a way to make their impoverished lives better?
