Storyline

The enigmatic old woman Rosa from Izmir and the powerful Ismael live for decades with the weight of a well-kept secret. An avid collector of Greek objects in Asia Minor, Dimitris, prepares an exhibition in a renowned museum in Athens on Culture of Nationalities who cohabited in Izmir before the genocide. In a trip to Izmir with the curator of the museum and his girlfriend Rita, he accidentally finds in a small antique shop a Greek wedding dress that is stained with blood. An old photograph, a wedding dress soiled with blood and a letter, become the reason to retract their story from the past.

You have to know history to understand
26 December 2018 | by evi-75011See all my reviews

The greatest problem is that you have to know history to understand this movie and be touched so I think the director should have given a prologue at the beginning as it is done in many movies.This is very important if we want a movie to be seen by everyone not only from Turkish and Greeks.Good performances and it is a very educational movie which talks about the disaster that war causes to both sides...for this humanitarian approach I give a higher rate than the movie deserves If there was a historical prologue,more scenes from the past in Ismir between Ross and Ismail as flashbacks this would be a much better movie. Still deserves to watch it :)
