Wonderful Film

Many films that debuted at this years Tiff were based on unfortunate periods of history. I hope that some of them can learn from this film. This has at its heart a love story. It also depicts what a nation is capable of doing to an ethic group when its leaders (both secular and spiritual) reduce the value of life of different cultures to nothing if it is not theirs - Islam.

This film is from the same director that brought Hotel Rwanda to the festival a few years back. That presentation was a wonderfully moving experience for me as this one was also.

This film is not all about murder thankfully. Its about the people who were once a vibrant part of the former Ottoman empire that find all of their hopes and dreams for the future suddenly crushed. It has at its core a wonderful love story and it has attracted many fine actors to portray these memorable roles. I found the female roles to be particularly well designed and delivered. Excellent female roles in this film.

FYI: At my screening (2nd) the director told us that there were 1400 seats at the first screening and that there were already 4000 negative reviews on IMDb - yes he reads these reviews. I don't believe 100's of Turks would come to a film festival only to learn about the Armenian Holocaust. No one at my screening cried foul.

People that maintain it didn't happen are still trapped in a loop of denial.

If we cannot remember the past we are doomed to repeat it.

This film is careful not to delve to strongly into the depiction of violence. I think this film might be appropriate to teach children about history and also to teach children about people who want to cover up history.

It is October 5th, almost a month now since the premiere. Currently 54,000 negative reviews for a film that hasn't opened yet - that must be some sort of a record.

Finally the Truth

Wrong history

This movie based on unrealistic history. The movie doesn't answer this question: Why Turkish killed Armanians? There is unreasonable. Because, over 600 years, Turkish people lived together Armanians in peace. There were a lot of Armanian pascha and governer. They trusted each other. What happened and everything changed? Why Turks didn't kill Christian Greeks and Jews? The movie didn't say anything about motives. In real history, Armanians revolt at freedom. They set gangs and killed innocent Muslim civillian villagers. So, Turkish goverment replaced civillian Armanians and fight back to gangs. This is not a genocide.
