100 years were not enough for the Armenian people to forget what happened to their grandparents and to their beloved land Armenia. Robert Guédiguian's new French drama film Une Histoire De Fou (Don’t Tell Me the Boy was Mad) is the newest movie talking about the Armenian Massacres. It is based on a true story of the patriotic Aram, a young French man from Marseille with Armenian origins, who decides to take his revenge against the Turkish government to force the Turks to recognize the Armenian genocide.
2 hours and 15 minutes quickly passed by thanks to the phenomenal direction and to the genius plot by maestro Robert Guédiguian. Don't Tell Me the Boy was Mad opened our eyes to what happened to the Armenian race, how it all started and how it still effects them every day. We loved the fact that the cast for this movie does not include only Armenians, but also French and Lebanese including our own famous Rodney El Haddad.
