You can still make an excellent movie without a big budget
My wife and I just saw a preview of My Uncle Rafael and what a pleasant surprise. Well written, acted and directed we found ourselves laughing out loud many times. The main plot involves an Armenian family and how they get mixed up in an American Television pilot for a reality TV show. The movie begins with Uncle Rafael an Armenian immigrant taking a course in English so he can better communicate and we are slowly introduced to the rest of his family all trying to make a good life in Glendale California.Vashik Pirhamzei does a great job portraying both Uncle Rafael and the smooth-talking son,Hamo.As the movie progresses we meet all sorts of characters with all sorts of motives for the success of this television show. John Michael Higgins is hilarious as a sleazy lawyer and Austin Robert Butler is an outstanding young actor at only 10 years old. All the acting is excellent; you would never guess that this movie was made for only $800,000! The director and editor, Marc Fusco did an outstanding job. If you’re looking for an unpretentious pleasant movie going experience, you won’t be disappointed.
This is a really funny indie film that’s great entertainment for the whole family. I was lucky enough to see this film in its first screening. The film’s star Vahik Pirhamzei plays multiple characters in this film and pulls it off surprisingly well. I saw this movie with my girlfriends and we all loved it. This movie was apparently shot in Los Angeles on a very low indie budget but you wouldn’t know it. The whole cast was really funny, especially John Higgins and Missi Pyle (who is consistently funny in everything).
This movie showcases an Armenian family in the same way that Big Fat Greek Wedding did for the Greek community. This is a really funny movie that I would recommend to anybody who is looking for some family entertainment.
