This is a movie that
has been crying to be made for a century. It graphically reveals the
shameful Turkish genocide of over 1 million Armenians during WWI,
something that is a fact of history but which the despicable Turks deny,
just as the Japanese deny their equally despicable “comfort women”
program that enslaved hundreds of thousands of Asian women to sexual
slavery in the ‘30s and ‘40s. Both Japan and Turkey are allies of ours,
yet we let them get away with these denials. We should not fear to speak
the truth. Kudos to the producers of this film for using art to reveal
the Turkish cruelty for the entire world to see.
This movie, starring
Oscar Isaac, Christian Bale, and with a bravura performance by Charlotte
Le Bon, tells the tale via a love story among the three stars. It

betrothed to another woman back in Siroun, his ancestral village in
Southern Turkey where Christian Armenians and Turkish Muslims had lived
together for ages, and Ana is romantically involved with American
journalist Chris Myers (Bale). When the slaughter begins, they all get
intricately involved in a fight for their lives and the lives of all the
The film is
brilliantly directed by Terry George from a terrific script by Robin
Swicord. Even though it’s over two hours in length, in never drags for
even a second.
