Join us for the May Cinema Saturday night.
The movie selection this month is :
588 Rue Paradis
(1992, Dir. Henri Verneuil, 130 mins, French w/English subtitles)
588 Rue Paradis is the 2nd autobiographical film by celebrated French-Armenian director Henri Verneuil, born Ashot Malakian in 1920 in the Ottoman Empire. This dramatic comedy sequel to Verneuil’s Mayrig (1991)* also features Omar Sharif and Claudia Cardinale, and examines Verneuil’s complex relationship with his father, who brought his family to Marseille, France to escape the Armenian Genocide.
Verneuil directed many popular French films and is sometimes connected to the French New Wave movement of the 1960’s. He was nominated for an Oscar, and received awards at Cannes and other international film festivals. He died in France in 2002.
* We have been searching without success to find Mayrig with Eng. Subtitles. Let us know if you have any leads!!

My Big Armenian Wedding (part I)
(2004, Dir. Rodion Nahapetov, 110 mins, Armenian & Russian w/English subtitles)
Home of Nairy Digris & Terry McGibbon
1703 Skillman Ave W, Roseville, MN 55113
Hilarious Russian TV comedy:
Tigran, a popular plastic surgeon in Moscow with roots in Armenia, and Lena, a well-educated and beautiful Russian woman, are in love. Families on both sides are mostly against the prospect of a "mixed marriage" and therefore devise various schemes to derail the impending engagement. Absurd and delightful situations develop. This is a 4-part series. We’ll watch the first two episodes, and if everyone appreciates this as much as Russian and Armenian TV viewers did, we’ll watch the last two episodes next month.
