In 1915, a man survives the Armenian genocide, but loses his family and faith. When he learns his twin daughters may be alive, he embarks on a quest to find them. The final installment in Fatih Akin’s Love, Death and the Devil trilogy.
Turkish-German director Fatih Akın’s skill and sensitivity for capturing the tensions between the East and the West made him a true festival favourite. In The Cut he delivers an impressively assured take on a tragic historical episode—an epic tale of survival nodding to the westerns of John Ford.
