An Excellent Movie about the Tragedy of the Armenian People
There are different nations, different countries and a long history of worldwide developments... However, Armenian people had a severe destiny, which creates one of the most bloody pages of old and new developments throughout the world. In 1915 the Ottoman Turks undertook Armenian massacres of 1500000 people. This film is one of the most bright pictures of those heavy times. Araqsi, Hakob, Azat (their son), Gayane and Anna (sisters of Araqsi) were able to escape from Western Armenia and moved to France. Hakob's brothers, stayed in Armenia in order to save the heritage of the family, "but could not" save their lives....". They used to live in a rich house, with no needs... In France, this beautiful faced difficulties of earning money, sending Azat to school and even finding a little fire to cook their dinners... However, they did not loose their values: the best school was chosen for Azat, the best dishes were cooked by Anna, the hardest work was done by Hakob... This is a must watch, regardless of your nationality... This is a deep movie about love, family, pain and joy. Children, women and men were killed in the desserts.. Turkish people were killing even pregnant women... Watch this film and know the real history...!
