In 1821, during the first year of the Greek War for Independence and the rebellion against the Ottoman Empire, the twenty-year-old Greek woman, Anna-Christina, falls for the conflicted Turkish officer, Colonel Tariq, who is having second thoughts about his compatriots' brutal approach to governing. However, Tariq and Anna's fledgeling romance is bound to bring suffering not only to her family but also her community. As a result, bent on retaliating, Christina summons up the courage to take part in the Revolution, and, unintentionally, she becomes a local symbol of the ever-growing Greek resistance movement, inspiring her fellow brothers and sisters-in-arms to take action. But, sooner or later, Christina will have to face her long-buried feelings for the man who still cares for her; a pivotal moment that will lead to tragic results. Written by Nick Riganas

For Greek Independence Day!
22 March 2019 | by athanasius1953See all my reviews

March 25, the Feast of the Annunciation is Greek Independence Day. This movie is about the struggle of the Greek peoples to partially free themselves from the Ottoman Empire in the 1820s. There were villains on both sides. There were people with redeeming qualities on both sides. I love the way it was explained about how we remember things both at the beginning of the movie and at the end. Would love to read the story it is based on. Bravo!
