    In 1821, during the first year of the Greek War for Independence and the rebellion against the Ottoman Empire, the twenty-year-old Greek woman, Anna-Christina, falls for the conflicted Turkish officer, Colonel Tariq, who is having second thoughts about his compatriots' brutal approach to governing. However, Tariq and Anna's fledgeling romance is bound to bring suffering not only to her family but also her community. As a result, bent on retaliating, Christina summons up the courage to take part in the Revolution, and, unintentionally, she becomes a local symbol of the ever-growing Greek resistance movement, inspiring her fellow brothers and sisters-in-arms to take action. But, sooner or later, Christina will have to face her long-buried feelings for the man who still cares for her; a pivotal moment that will lead to tragic results. —Nick Riganas

My honest opinion

Some things trouble me about this movie. I think the acting was not an Oscar performance. I would like Ruben to have some trouble with controlling his voice level while he is talking. However, I liked his performance in a way. He handled to demonstrate his hopes about his condition and inner conflicts without directly showing it to us. I can say that Riz Ahmed did a great job at that.

I did not like the story. I like it when movies have strong beginnings and calm endings. But, in this movie, nothing happens in between (Act 2). I did not also understand what it really tries to tell the audience. I now it shows us the deaf community and how Rubert's life changes. But it was just so long and slow that you can't really follow after a moment. I did not also understand Lou. I do not want to give spoilers, but I just didn't understand what is her deal. I guess this movie just isn't for me.

Good, But Not Perfect

While I think Riz Ahmed gave award-worthy performance in this film, the implant misinformation lowered my rating. Getting implants is not a quick process and a good audiologist would never tell a patient you're just going to have to get used to it. It takes multiple visits before and after surgery. That being said, I really enjoyed the scenes with the deaf community and him working with the children. I would give the acting 10/10. It has a great cast.

I also want to point out that there's absolutely nothing wrong with a person with hearing loss getting implants if they choose to and they shouldn't be shamed for it. But, it's also okay if you don't want implants, nobody should make you feel bad about either choice.

Saving (and accepting) ourselves

Confession: I'm a total sucker for recovery stories - maybe it is the former social worker in me. Now, some people might suggest this movie's about music or the deaf community, but I honesty believe it is about saving (and accepting) ourselves. It is about the addictions that define us, whether we're embracing or surrendering them...and the people that help heal us along the way. In other words, it IS a recovery story. And it is also flawlessly done. The performances are intimate, the sounds/silences keep drawing you in, and the moments of stillness are absolutely breathtaking. Marder's crafted something that feels so personal and authentic, an invitation into these characters' lives and experiences. When the credits rolled, I just sat there taking it in.
