Also Wano, carpet-seller, will receive his second, secret life, as light-footed dead-angel for the Turkish politician, as charming terrorist, as loner and successful lover. He prepared the "liquidation" of the Turkish consuls in Rotterdam, and executed them. He lures him with the picture of the Turkish sultan Abdul Hamid The Bloody, which he has bought in the auction house 'Leo Jansen'. Secret connections consist between Wano and the old man of uptown Rotterdam, who presumably finances this terror-attack. Written by

Armenian filmmaker Don Askarian wrote, directed, and edited this often surreal look at one expatriate's reflections upon life in his homeland. In Holland, a group of Armenian terrorists have swung into action, murdering a Turkish intelligence agent and holding his son for ransom. As the battle of wits between the terrorists and the Dutch police plays itself out, an author from Armenia living in Rotterdam finds himself following the events as he thinks back on his life in his homeland, indulging in fantasies about his past, his future, and his obsessions. On the Old Roman Road was shown at the 2001 Rotterdam Film Festival as part of a series financed in part by the Hubert Bals Fund, which also provided backing for the film. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
