Excellent was about time that everyone know the truth to what really happened and a genocide took place on april 24 1915.

Completely disappointing. The background settings were incredibly fake and the acting extremely mediocre. The movie had horrible transitions between scenes, and cliche plot of making a movie in a movie completely desensitized the horrors of the true Armenian Genocide. The script was also terrible.

A very good movie

Ararat is the worst movie of Egoyan, who is otherwise a smart producer. I suspect that he fall in the trap of the historical charge on the first world war Anatolia and the dismantling of the Ottoman Empire. The film is surprisingly didactic and what is worse, it tries to push in your face something else, as if it is an intellectually sophisticated film. In reality it is sophisticated looking propaganda film. Just a trash.

A must see movie. Congratulations to Atom Egoyan for an outstanding presentation of the Armenian Genocide. Yes, some Turks may have died during World War I, but what that`s got to do with the Armenian Genocide? Very few Armenians were able to protect themselves from torture, rape, mass murder, etc. What the Armenian people had to go through is extremely hard to picture without explicit evidence out there. In the current century with world wide web, people have an easy access to education. Armenian genocide is a historical truth and it`s time for the government of Turkey to stop the Denial.

Ararat, (which is a mountain in Turkey) is a good film to show the audience about the armenian incident. However, as far as I`m concerned from taking many history courses in University, I thought turks died in the war too. I mean i certainly don`t deny anything that happened, but it is true that turkish ppl were killed and slaughtered in many areas of eastern turkey as well. Therefore, this film has a biased view in my opinion. P.S--i am not a turk.! lol
