Charlotte Le Bon,
In 2015, exactly 100 years after the Armenian Genocide, a theatre director (Simon) is staging a play at the Los Angeles Theatre to honor the victims of that tragedy -- a horrifying crime forgotten and denied for an entire century. But as protesters surround his theatre, and a series of mysterious accidents spread panic among his actors, we realize that Simon's mission is more controversial than we think -- and the ghosts of the past are everywhere.
A complicated film about the echoing effects of the 1915 Armenian Genocide in the descendants of survivors today. There are many poignant moments in this film which will touch the heart of any survivor of genocide, however it tries to cover such a complex issue in a short amount of time that it becomes convoluted. But films which require you to think are the best ones. I'll be watching it a 2nd time. Even Siamanto says this story cannot be told.
Don't expect a historical film about the events of 1915 nor the current day politics on the issue. Anyone in these comments who give it 1 star are clearly DENIALIST TURKS. If you suggest this is a political film you obviously haven't seen it and have another agenda. If anything this film suggests Armenians and Turks should get past their differences.
