Alain Delon, Adrien Brody and Dustin Hoffman to star in a new film on
Armenian Genocide

17:25 02.05.2014


Producer Velriy Saharyan plans to shoot a movie about the Armenian
Genocide and intends to invite renowned French actor Alain Delon to
star in the film.

Speaking to LifeNews Saharyan recalled Mr. Delon's visit to the
Armenian Genocide memorial in Yerevan. `The actor was so excited he
could not help crying.'

Saharyan himself has learnt about the horrors of the 1915 massacres
from his grandmother.

The events in the film to be titled `Patient' take place in one of the
psychiatric clinics in Paris in early 20th century. The main character
is Armenian composer Komitas. The nightmare he experienced during the
Genocide left a deep ineradicable impression on his soul. Komitas
remained in seclusion from the outer world, absorbed in his gloomy and
heavy thoughts ` sad and broken. In the autumn of 1916, he was taken
to a hospital in Constantinople, and then moved to Paris in 1919,
where he died in a psychiatric clinic in 1935.

For Valeriy Saharyan the film is a tribute to the memory of his
ancestors. That's why he wants to involve people not indifferent to
the issue of genocide. He has recently contacted Serj Tankian, lead
singer of the System Of A Down, who has agreed to write the
soundtrack for the future film.
Renowned Hollywood actors Adrien Brody and Dustin Hoffman are also
expected to star in the film.

Turkey will shoot a film ahead of the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide in response to Armenia’s plans to produce a movie starring Alain Delon, Ermenihaber reports quoting Haberturk agency.

The issue was discussed at the meeting of the Turkish Grand National Assembly’s committee on “Armenian Genocide allegations” called to consider counter-measures to Armenian Diaspora’s genocide centennial preparation events.

The Turkish movie will be titled “The Crack of our Heart.” The filming will start in a few months in Izmir.

Opposition lawmaker Sinan Ohan said the movie’s title is unrelated to the Armenian issue. “It’s a love story,” he said.

The report says American film director Steve Spielberg has already received the proposal to produce the film titled “The Wounded.

As it was reported earlier, Delon will portray the great Armenian composer Komitas (1869-1935). The nightmare he experienced during the Genocide left a deep ineradicable impression on his soul. Komitas remained in seclusion from the outer world, absorbed in his gloomy and heavy thoughts – sad and broken. In the autumn of 1916, he was taken to a hospital in Constantinople, and then moved to Paris in 1919, where he died in a psychiatric clinic in 1935.

Dustin Hofman is also expected to play in the movie. Serj Tankian, lead singer of the System Of A Down, has agreed to write the soundtrack for the future film.

parliament members.

Armenian lobby's proposal to produce the film, The Wounded, says
the publication.

According to the Turkish media, Delon will portray Komitas, the great
Armenian composer Komitas (1869-1935) who experienced a serious mental
breakdown in the wake of Genocide.
