  • 5 stars The best movie I have seen this year. It is historical, heart wrenching, and devastating, to go through such an outrageous, inhumane, and barbaric treatment of the Armenians, by the Ottoman Empire. My thanks go to Krikor Krikorian, for fully funding this movie. It is about time to tell this real tragic story, the TRUTH, to the whole world. This should never happen to any nation ever. Must see. I encourage everybody to go and see this movie.
  • 5 stars Best film on the Armenian genocide to date! A must-see!
  • 5 stars The promise was a great introduction to history without excessive violence. Christian Bale performed well as the journalist and the love story that transcends the movie brought the complex plot together. Worth watching
  • 5 stars Incredible movie. The lead actor was mesmerizing. While this is about the Armenian genocide, it is important to understand the connection btw this genocide and the Holocaust. The Germans and Turks were allies in WWI. The Germans learned that genocide is a profitable business and decided to implement it on the Jews in WWII, with the help of Haj amin al Hussani (who also served in the Ottoman army). It is important to learn about the Armenian genocide, to honor the victims and also to understand how this opened the gate of hell, to the worst genocide of all times.
  • 5 stars A beautiful love story that reveals the suffering and human losses inflicted on armenians. It is an inspiring movie that is accessible to every human being concerned about life.
  • 5 stars Great movie. Held my attention the entire time.
  • 5 stars Beautifully directed and acted movie. Great job! This movie brings the forgotten real history to the world- the first genocide of the 19th century executed by the Ottoman Empire, The Armenian Genocide. The truth is a truth no matter how many years pass.
  • 5 stars Must see - excellent!
  • 5 stars A must see .Very well done .Great acting .It shows the suffering the Armenians went through under the ottoman Empire . It is about the Armenian Genocide .A critic compared this movie to Shindler,s list a movie about the Holocust . Very emotional for me .My grandparents ,my uncle my aunts walked from Aintep in the desert for days and they arrived to Aleppo Syria they were among the lucky ones who made it . The last part of the movie a German writer wrote a book about those Courageous Armenians who fought the Turkish Ottoman soldiers for 40 days .It is called the 40 days of Musa Dagh . I saw the movies two times .Go and see it you will not regret it and you will have learnt a part of history that took place in 1915 against the Armenians Thank You .
