Critic Reviews for Smyrna: The Destruction of a Cosmopolitan City - 1900-1922

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

A sobering study in how individual human beings can become afterthoughts in the face of broad movements like nationalism, a phenomenon that is still much in evidence almost a century later.

Maria Ilioú's uninspired flake of talking-head Wikipedia cinema focuses on the forgotten Anatolian port city's post-World War I years.
