Given the air quality in Thessaloniki, the Angels' white costumes won't need spraying in dirt.   :lol:

Smyrna review – raw, shocking violence in epic take on Greek-Turkish conflict

This epic historical drama could have been called Once Upon a Time in Asia Minor or Once Upon a Time in Turkey, depending on which side of the Greek-Turkish divide you sit. That thorny geopolitical entanglement is what it attempts to unpick, sometimes too forcefully, in telling the story of the one-time melting pot of Smyrna (now İzmir). It culminates in a shockingly raw depiction of the 1922 massacre and ethnic cleansing of the Greek and Armenian population by Kemal Atatürk’s irregulars after they entered the city.

Filmed in Hios, Lesvos and Athens: here's how it was reported at the time by the Guardian (Manchester Guardian, as was): The destruction of Smyrna – archive, 1922

Showing at various cinemas around the UK tomorrow night (only?), 04/12/22: londonnet.co.uk/films/smyrna/
