With this beautiful and evocative film set in Armenia and Canada, Atom Egoyan ('Exotica', 'The Sweet Herafter') filtered his abiding obsessions into the most compact form he's yet achieved. Egoyan himself stars as a photographer sent to Armenia to document historic churches for a calendar commission. He takes along his wife as a translator (played by Egoyan's real-life wife and frequent star Arsinee Khanjian), but their relationship begins to unravel as she becomes more and more drawn to her ethnic roots and to their Armenian guide.
