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
Something for everyone...history, tragic romance, intense battles, and girl power!
Cliffs of Freedom brings to life the Greek Revolution against the Ottoman Empire, intertwining the horrors of war with a story of true love and sacrifice. The lines of good and evil are blurred by the kindness, passion, and bravery of a Turk and a Greek village girl who are drawn together and fall in love despite being on opposite sides. This movie was incredibly touching, the battle scenes were powerful, the costumes & sceneries were beautiful, and the casting was spot-on. Despite the tragedy, this movie left me feeling upbeat. I highly recommend!!
