What are people saying?

  • Haticehat's rating of the film Shadows and Faces

    This is a worthy attempt to tell the story of the origins of the Cyprus conflict in the 1960s, largely avoiding the big political debates of the time (the graffiti says it all...) and focusing on the real human experience in the microcosm of one village. Valuable viewing for anyone interested in Cyprus or 'contested lands' and a remarkable achievement using cast and crew from across the divide
