Coming from an Armenian background, I was biased to enjoy a film with Armenian themes and topics, especially from the opening shots of this film. I was glued to the screen... then after the first 5 minutes, it simply goes downhill and doesn't gain any momentum. Skip this one.
The Road is a dark, touching, and well constructed film that keeps you glued with its beautifully bleak images; it also has amazing performances from father and son. You would imagine that the film is a downer, but it definitely makes you appreciate life that much more. Well worth watching.
