On the 11th of September TIFF aired "The Promise" directed by Terry George. The movie is about a love triangle and the events are taking place back in 1915 during the events of Armenian Genocide by Ottoman Turks. For more than a century this topic has almost never been screened for a worldwide public and this attempt with a talented Director and cast is unprecedented.
Today I was disturbed by the low rating of the
film and the fact that Turkish and Azerbaijanian activists are trying to underscore the movie to prevent its success in access to wider public is just devastating obvious fact.
I would kindly ask IMDb to draw the attention on rating banners especially in the countries where the movie has not been premiered yet.
