Le Tcheurek de Vartouche

Le-Tchourek

Drama | 9 min |  Country: Armenia, France

French with English subtitles

Director: Gerard Boyadjian​

Cheureg – a traditional brioche made by many Armenians at Easter, is not a simple cheureg to filmmaker Gerard Boyadjian, yet a recipe that connects generations, arouses senses and explores memories of childhood. A sentimentally directed film that retells a story of love and memory between generations.

Set in a remote Armenian village, a grand piano is delivered by the Ministry of Culture, to enable a young girl to practice for her piano competition. The piano does not fit through the door so it stays outside, where the young girl practices to the delight of the villagers. An endearing film.
