Like John Ford’s sweeping historical dramas, The Cut follows the journey of one father’s search through several continents for his two daughters after they are separated during the 1915 Armenian Genocide. Forced from his home in Mardin, Nazareth gets word that his daughters may still be alive and he travels the globe in search for them. His odyssey takes him from the Mesopotamian deserts to Havana and finally to the barren prairies of North Dakota.
NOTE: While this film is unrated in the U.S., the film contains disturbing images of violence and human suffering.
“A genuine hand-made epic … has great intensity, beauty and sweeping grandeur.” — Martin Scorsese
