I cried many times.
The acting is superb and the sets are meticulously designed. I was left shaken by the unspeakable horrors the Armenians endured at the hands of the Turks for no other reason other than because they were not Muslims. One thing that is not clear in this excellent movie is why this horrific genocide occurred on such a immense scale. The Armenians were Christians and the Turks were Muslim. This genocide was a direct result of a cruel political system called Islam that tolerates no other faiths.
Something which has happened in the past, and has never been recognized properly by the big governments. Armenian genocide was the worst in its kind. turkey should be ashamed to ignore the barbaric way of life that they had and still have in this moment.
An excellent movie about a very important historical subject. Unfortunately, it does fall in some clichés and stereotypes in a few scenes - the fake accents are one of them. This movie shows Christian Bale is a better actor than Oscar Isaac.
A story that must be told!!
The best movie I have seen this year. It is historical, heart wrenching, and devastating, to go through such an outrageous, inhumane, and barbaric treatment of the Armenians, by the Ottoman Empire. My thanks go to Krikor Krikorian, for fully funding this movie. It is about time to tell this real tragic story, the TRUTH, to the whole world. This should never happen to any nation ever. Must see. I encourage everybody to go and see this movie.
Best film on the Armenian genocide to date! A must-see!
The promise was a great introduction to history without excessive violence. Christian Bale performed well as the journalist and the love story that transcends the movie brought the complex plot together. Worth watching
IT WAS VERRY EMOTIONAL AND TENSE MOVIE AND ABOUT LOVE. TOO BAD THEY DIDN'T DO THIS MOVIE A LONG TIME AGO, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT'S ALL TRUE
