one of films about the Armenian genocide. as root for feelings and for fight and for discover the other as part of yourself. a film about terrorism. at the first sigh. or about a holy legacy. significant in the case of this film is the equilibrium. and the admirable performances - Ariane Ascaride is the best example. because, in inspired manner, it is not a portrait of events. but the image of soul states in different situations. about the noble ideas and ways to impose an ideal. about crime and about family. and about an accident who change everything. one of films for remember. or discover. not only a national tragedy. but the delicate, precise way to present it at the level of personal every day life.
