Description

Controversial and powerful, Fatih Akin’s final installment in his Love, Death, and the Devil trilogy (after Head-On and The Edge of Heaven) tackles the dramatic events best known as the Armenian Genocide. 1915 in the city of Mardin, Nazaret, a young blacksmith, is rounded up by the police and separated from his wife and two daughters. Fate would allow him to survive the horrors of the genocide, and he becomes driven to travel the world over in order to find his two daughters rumored to still be alive.

"A forceful, watchable, strongly presented picture and a courageous, honest gesture from Fatih Akin." - The Guardian
