Storyline

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 e-SpaRtaCuS

120 - Inspirational
19 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is a drama, and quite worthy of my 9-star rating. It's quite deserving of ten stars, but I think that if there was focus on the lives of some of the particular boys, it would have toppled many Academy Award films. But to focus on a few would most likely take away the true sacrifice of the many.

Nevertheless, the acting was excellent. It's a story of patriotism and sage topped off with a dose of emotional reality. Once I got past the tears, I managed to applaud this feature. All I can say is that the viewer will not be disappointed by this historical tale of a true heroic journey of '120'.

The directing and the location photography were outstanding. I applaud the crew.
