About the Movie

Martin Scorsese hails Fatih Akin's THE CUT as "a genuine hand-made epic." Like John Ford’s sweeping historical dramas, THE CUT follows the journey of one father's search through the Ottoman Empire for his two daughters after they are separated during the 1915 Armenian Genocide. Forced from his home in Mardin, Nazareth (Tahar Rahim, A PROPHET) 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. THE CUT is the final chapter of Fatih Akin’s LOVE, DEATH and DEVIL trilogy that began with HEAD ON and THE EDGE OF HEAVEN

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Too many scenes feel routine or cliched, sometimes even those depicting extreme experiences. – Nicolas Rapold, New York Times, Sep 17, 2015

Fresh: This depiction could be seen as an allegory of the millions who have been displaced by the Syrian war and continue to fight for their survival as refugees. – Martin Tsai, Los Angeles Times, Sep 17, 2015

Rotten: An ambitious but only intermittently stirring historical epic from Turkish-German director Fatih Akin. – Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter, Sep 8, 2014

Fresh: This epic of genocide, exile, and fortitude offers raw emotion and marvelous vistas - and is also a demanding sit, as epics of genocide and exile probably should be. – Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice, Sep 15, 2015

Customer Reviews

Powerful Film!

Does a good job in distilling the Armenian experience. From a glimpse of the life under Ottoman rules, the unspeakable horror of the "Death March," the tremendous losses felt in the aftermath, and the struggle to start over again from nothing. In many ways far superior to anyhting else on the topic.
