|Movie description: |
|A village boy, Gikor by name, meets his tragic fate when he is sent to the city (Tiflis) by his father, Hambo, to work for a rich trader, Bazaz Artem.|
»Gikor« is an Armenian drama film based on Hovhannes Tumanyan’s poem of the same name.
In the early years of the 20th century a poor young boy called Gikor is taken by his father from his village home in the mountains of Armenia to the big bustling city. There he is placed in service with a family of linen drapers who starve and beat him, generally using him as a drudge. Only the »babushka« (the grandmother of the household) treats him kindly. Every night Gikor dreams of his friends and family back in the Caucasus Mountains.
The film gives an insight into Armenian customs and costume, and includes traditional folk music.
