    it is engaging up to the end where it seemed rushed. We needed to understand the superstitions, his visions, and character development of the main actors Ayshe especially. overall good watch

    Being Australian I had an added interest in this film. The fact that it gave an insight into the Turkish side of things during and after the war. Fine acting from the cast and a story with a basis of truth makes for interesting viewing

    A very uninteresting and boring movie. Not worth your time at all and will just leave you tired and waiting for something to happen.

    Wasn't a fan of Russel Crowe's directing but he did try his best and it still held up as a decent film. Although I did think it got too soapy sometimes, it was still a strong look at a grieveing man looking for his sons. Recommend

    Really excellent. A different perspective, well worth watching.

    Great movie. Shows the horrors of The Great War; the passionate desperation of a man searching for his three missing sons; a possibility of romance with a self-liberating Turkish woman. Russell Crowe is magnificent. There is no bad acting, it is all authentic and utterly believable.

    I'm not sure about this one. Good actors and photography but a very bewildering and hard to believe story line, made even more confusing by completely unnecessary scenes and characters with sub-plots that start out o.k. but just don't go anywhere. There were one or two powerful and emotional scenes and the music score was excellent. The end song through the credits was amazing. I guess if nothing else after reading the reviews here, it's inspired me to do some research on the Armenian Genocide. Good for a one time view. I wouldn't watch it again though.
