Review
During the 1915 Genocide, many Armenian fled to Eastern Armenia looking for help and relief from Russia. Several years later the new Communist rulers "donated" a huge chunk of Armenian land to Ottoman Turkey, thus cutting any hopes for Armenians to revive their old cities and villages.
Arakel Aloyan is one of the Armenians who witnessed his village burnt and women raped, fled to the East to begin a new life in Soviet Armenia... but still yearns for his home village that is now in Turkey. Nostalgia makes him to cross the Soviet border to visit the tombs of his parents, to kiss the remaining walls of the church. The Soviet government considers that as "Spying against the Nation".

it's one of my most fevered movies. for many years I was only able to find one duplicate, but now good folks at Sharm have digitally re-mastered the film, the quantity is outstanding.

it's nice to see companies like Sharm - Paradise MGN - GTAK spending money and time to preserve what we have,

Wow. I just watched this movie and I loved it. It's such a sad story. Everybody should see it. It once again reminds us of both, the Soviet and Turkish horrors.

This is indeed one great film. The main thing I recall is that it reminded my grandmother of her own childhood in Communist Russia and brought tears to her eyes.
