Charlotte Le Bon,
In 2015, exactly 100 years after the Armenian Genocide, a theatre director (Simon) is staging a play at the Los Angeles Theatre to honor the victims of that tragedy -- a horrifying crime forgotten and denied for an entire century. But as protesters surround his theatre, and a series of mysterious accidents spread panic among his actors, we realize that Simon's mission is more controversial than we think -- and the ghosts of the past are everywhere.
There are many praiseworthy aspect of 1915, but I will single out two of them. The first is the absolutely phenomenal performance of Nikolai Kinski in the role or Tony Gallow. He is absolutely brilliant and this role once again proves that he is one of the most talented European actors today. He is bone-chillingly good. The other is the music. Serj Tankian (System of a Down) might be a rock-star by night, but by day he has composed a lusciously beautiful score. To be honest I actually think Tankian is even more talented as composer than he is as front-man vocalist. Listen to the movie, don't just watch it, and you will know the meaning of 1915.
