Aras Bulut Iynemli,
During the Sarikamis Battle, the Ottoman army runs out of ammunition and appeals to the people of Van for help, who happen to have supplies. However, the First World War is on and all men are fighting at four corners of the empire and therefore can not respond to to the appeal. The young children of Van want to do something. When the Principal of a school, who has lost a son in the war, suggests that the ammunition be transported to Sarikamis, 120 young boys aged 12 to 17 volunteer and take to the road. The movie tells the true story of the 120 boys and their sisters and mothers left behind, who wait for their return. The movie opens with a scene where and Armenian doctor goes to the house of a Turk whose son is sick, as he has done many times before. One of the boys does not like an Armenian doctor providing medical service to Turks, who, he believes are out to destroy the Turks. At the same time, the Armenian members of the Hunchaks in Van, who gather at a church and vow to join the... Written by
This movie just a pathetic attempt to rewrite history of non-existent Ottoman Empire and justify the genocide of the Armenians. The Republic of Turkey was created much later, in 1922.
In the beginning, barbarous Turkic tribes from the steppes occupied foreign orthodox nation, expelled the local population, converted orthodox churches to the mosque, renamed Constantinople to Istanbul and settled in other people's homes, completely independent from all civilized countries.
In 1914 Turkic minister Enver Pasha, together with the German command, started the war against Russia and it's allies - France and Great Britain, - without the consent of the other members of the government (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Triple_Entente.jpg)
October 16 Turkish cruiser "Hamidi" came to Novorossiysk. Staying near the town cruiser pulled the boat, and two Turkish naval officers arrived in Novorossiysk. They demanded that local authorities of the city surrender and transfer all state-owned assets of the treasury. After listening to this requirement, local authorities arrested officers and sent them to jail. Without waiting for the return of the officers cruiser "Hamida" weighed anchor and left. Few moments later approached a Turkish destroyer and sank the Russian ship "Nikolai" in the Russian port, also tanks with oil on the banks was damaged which caught fire.
29 and 30 October 1914 the Turkish fleet bombarded Sevastopol, Odessa, Theodosia and Novorossiysk (the informal Russian name of that was "Sevastopol up call"). After that, on November 1 Russians crossed the frontier.
In 1915 Ottoman Empire started Armenian Genocide, the wholesale killing of the able-bodied male population through massacre and forced labor, and the deportation of women, children, the elderly and infirm. The total number of people killed as a result has been estimated at between 1 and 1.5 million.
Afterall, words "Russia" and "russians" appears in this "film" too often. No good playing in this movie, scary men with knives against fathers of minor children, special actors with blue eyes ("look here, we all Europeans, like you, and we need freedom! (from very bad scenarists)"), etc.
This film looks like Turkic war-propaganda made in 1914 and must sees without color and without sound, like an very old silent movie.
