The Cut Trailer

"A love that can't be stopped." The first official US trailer has debuted for Fatih Akin's epic new film The Cut. Starring the very talented Tahir Rahim, seen in A Prophet, The Eagle and The Past, set in 1915 a man survives the Armenian genocide in the Ottoman Empire, but loses his family, speech and faith. One night he learns that his twin daughters may be alive, and goes on a quest to find them leading him all the way to America. This looks quite magnificent, despite mixed reviews. I love the shot of him watching the Chaplin movie and getting emotional and inspired by that. The cast includes Simon Abkarian, Makram Khoury, Hindi Zahra & Kevork Malikyan. You might not want to miss this one. I'm looking forward to seeing it.

Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Fatih Akin's The Cut, first found via The Film Stage:

The Cut Poster

The Cut is Fatih Akin's epic drama about one man's journey through the Ottoman Empire after surviving the 1915 Armenian genocide. Deported from his home in Mardin, Nazareth (Tahar Rahim) moves onwards as a forced laborer. When he learns that his twin daughters may still be alive, his hope is revived and he travels to America, via Cuba, to find them. His search takes him from the Mesopotamian deserts and Havana to the barren and desolate prairies of North Dakota. On this odyssey, he encounters a range of very different people: angelic and kind-hearted characters, but also the devil incarnate. Directed by Fatih Akin (Short Sharp Shock, Head On, The Edge of Heaven), from a screenplay by Fatih Akin and Mardik Martin. This premiered at the Venice Film Festival last year, and will arrive in US theaters on September 18th this fall.

Today seems to be a banner day for epic movies! What happened to the Armenians during this time is one of the greatest tragedies no one hears about. I remember we barely touched on it way back in high school.

I'm from France where the Armenian community is pretty huge. We didn't graze the Armenian genocide by the Turks in History class either. Shame.

Fatih Akin makes great films and I have no doubts that this is going to be good. For anyone interested, check 'Head-on' (Gegen die Wand) from 2004. Very nice piece of cinema ...
