This is really an annoying watch. The problem with this film -as with similar films- is that the tragedy of the past genocide deserves to be portrayed much more carefully, realistically, accurately instead of being executed as in this sort of Hollywoodised, commercial & infantile story-telling and dramatisation.
This has been unjustly criticized as being tasteless becasue of it's mixing genocide and wartime romance plots. They have given Oscars to more manipulative history films. I felt the acting made the melodrama more credible than it would have been otherwise. However, unlike the expansive running time of a historical novel, a 2 hr film may be too sprawling to deal with the atrocities and the personal drama fully.
