If anyone knows about Smyrna they know the scale of the genocide and the complexity behind it all. This film is very pseudo-artistic not capturing the essence of the time and sadly its very awkward to watch almsot comical. Turks and French fighting in silence? Close ups of a beautiful woman...nothing really said about anything, just a pretentious film reflecting more the directors' personal taste than a true representation of the events - shame of the title, it gives you nothing. Read Giles Milton Paradise Lost to learn what really happened and hopefully someone make Smyrna the TV series it deserves to be and the heroism of the people involved.
