One of the most touching movies I have ever seen
3 August 2006 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This movie is about an Armenian family who was forced to leave his homeland in order to escape certain death from Turkish army during Armenian Genocide in Ottoman Empire. This movie is a masterpiece not only that it is based on real happenings and that with the story of one family it represents the story of survival of the whole nation but also because it shows, in a very sensitive way, the life of one man from his difficult but happy childhood until the very heights of his successful career. It demonstrates that the care and unity within family are the cornerstones of the happiness, even when you pass through the hardest times. It is about the sacrificial care and boundless love of every Father and every Mother for their child. And nothing is more important for a person in his life than to make his parents proud and happy.
