Filmmaker Michael Cacoyannis may have established himself in Greece, but he was born in Cyprus, and a Cypriot he remained in his heart. Cacoyannis' 1974 Attila 74: The Rape of Cyprus suggests that the Turkish invasion of his native land helped bring about the end of the military junta that had ruled Greece since 1966. But it also shows the appalling price imposed upon Cyprus and its people. Intriguingly, Attila 74 remains Cacoyannis's one-and-only documentary film. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

Touching Portrait of Tragedy by JMVerville September 16, 2004 - 8:21 PM PDT

I found this film interesting because it documents very thoroughly the events of the 1974 war in Cyprus(and the occurrences leading up to it) in a very interesting light. It is very informative, though it be one-sided in its' information that it chooses to provide. However, its' side is represented well with the presentation of many facts and touching cinematic sequences, and shows a completeness in its' study and documentation of the war. It presents the reality of the situation and the problems that were faced by the people in Cyprus on a very human level, and it is the sort of film that you cannot easily forget.

Overall, if you enjoy historical or political films, and have any remote interest in the Mediterranean political situation, I would recommend it. Otherwise, one might not find the film to be particularly interesting or good, in spite of the beautiful shots of Cyprus and touching stories told by those caught in the tragedy.
