Storyline

Omeris, a Turkish Cypriot boy, grows up with Greek-Cypriots in the innocent years of his homeland. He has been taught that human beings have no differences between them, whether they call themselves Greek or Turk, Muslim or Christian. When he falls in love with a Greek-Cypriot girl, he realizes that the world is not as he imagined it to be.The game of love has many surprises in store for him. Destiny ordains that he fight so that he can stay with his beloved, at a moment when the people around him are moving in exactly the opposite direction, towards separation and partition. If he doesn't want to be defeated he must fight the absurdity of fanaticism that is invading his personal life and is trying to crush it. Written by Thessaloniki Film Festival

Trivia

The first-ever Cypriot film to be selected for the Venice Film Festival. Despite this honor, the Cypriot government asked the director to withdraw the film for political reasons, and the film has still not been allowed to be shown in its native Cyprus. The European Parliament has sent an open letter to the Cyprus Ministry of Culture lauding the film and asking that it be allowed to be shown. As of mid-2007, the government has not relented.

Great film. Every Cypriot(not only) should see it
16 August 2007 | by (Cyprus) – See all my reviews

This film is one of the very rare Cypriot films that are worth seeing. The history of the island (1930's-1970's) is portrayed through the love of two young people. Two Cypriots that are divided by their religion. They find ways to come together but the ultra right elements on both sides come between them.

This film does not hide and clearly shows some very controversial elements of Cypriot history especially the EOKA struggle and the murders of left winged people by the EOKA fighters. This caused the Cypriot government's fury and thus was no longer funded by it. In fact they even tried to ban the film.

I would urge every Cypriot to see it so that we can learn from our history.
