Очередная статья, восхваляющая фильм “The Promise” , в русском прокате "Обещание", и критикующая фильм "Горы и камни"


There has been much anticipation and political propaganda surrounding the release of the film “The Promise.” In March a film was released in the U.S. called “The Ottoman Lieutenant” which was directed by Joseph Ruben and includes a cast of well-known stars such as Michiel Huisman, Hera Hilmar, Josh Hartnett, and Ben Kingsley. “The Ottoman Lieutenant” has been called out for being “Turkish propaganda” by the Greeks, Armenians and Assyrians and was boycotted by many organizations and individuals.

“The film is a blatant attempt to repudiate the upcoming movie, “The Promise,” and mislead impressionable youth into believing the Genocide was a ‘two-sided’ event,” the American Hellenic Council (AHC) wrote in a statement in March urging a boycott of the film for denying the Greek, Assyrian and Armenian Genocide by the Ottomans.

Было много ожиданий и политической пропаганды, связанных с выпуском фильма «Обещание». В марте фильм был выпущен в США под названием «Оттоманский лейтенант», режиссером которого был Джозеф Рубен, и включает в себя актеры известных звезд, таких как Как Мишель Хюисман, Гера Хильмар, Джош Хартнетт и Бен Кингсли. «Оттоманский лейтенант» был призван быть «турецкой пропагандой» греками, армянами и ассирийцами и был бойкотирован многими организациями и отдельными лицами.

«Фильм - вопиющая попытка отказаться от предстоящего фильма« Обещание »и ввести в заблуждение впечатлительную молодежь, считая, что Геноцид был« двусторонним »событием», - говорится в заявлении в марте в американском эллинском совете (AHC) Бойкот фильма за отрицание греческого, ассирийского и армянского геноцида османами.

Josh Hartnett Discusses The Ottoman Lieutenant
The actor discusses his brilliant new role in action-packed drama, The Ottoman Lieutenant.

3 August 2017

Joseph Ruben is the man in the director’s chair for brilliant new action-packed drama, The Ottoman Lieutenant. Starring Ben Kingsley, Josh Hartnett, Michiel Huisman and Hera Hilmar, the film is a star-studded affair that tells the wartime story of a strong-willed woman named Lillie (Hilmar), who leaves America after meeting American doctor Jude (Hartnett) who runs a remote medical mission within the Ottoman Empire.

Today, Female First can bring you an exclusive Q&A with Hartnett all about his role in the film. Check it out below:

What attracted you to the role?

Honestly, this movie came to me in the regular fashion. My agent sent me the script, said the director Joe Ruben would like to talk to you, and then the movie all came together very quickly. He asked if we could have a Skype meeting, then we had subsequent meetings about the character and that’s what drew me to the character. The fact that Joe and I could collaborate and expand on the character. That’s always exciting to me because then you can bend yourself into the character, the character starts becoming a part of you and then you become the character. Joe was also a big reason because he was so open and warm, also very specific about what he liked but was able to allow me to bring my own spin into it.

What was it about the character that resonated with you?

I like Jude because he was not your typical character, as far as most of the characters that are sent to me. Jude doesn’t get the girl. Jude is known for and prides himself from being a moral person. He’s not a bad boy, he’s not a heart throb, and he’s a man on the edge of his known existence. Doing what he feels is morally correct and living in a world that is chaotic at best. I loved that he was so driven by his ideas, that he was a person that respected concepts, that enjoys the simplicity that’s so far removed from what he understands. I think that Jude is not necessarily running away from the U.S., but once he left the U.S. that simple way of life is what suits him. Because he was allowed to be much more human out there, in the civilisation that he knew. I just admire a guy like this.

Can you tell us about Jude’s relationship with Lillie and Ismail?

Michiel Huisman’s character Ismail doesn’t have any real ambitions at the beginning but he is charming enough, and they (Ismail and Lillie) find themselves on an adventure as they travel towards Van (Turkey). And during that time, circumstances being what they were, they fall in love. Love is about timing. In my opinion, love is about the circumstances that surround it, and unfortunately for Jude he never gets a chance. By the time she’s arrived in Van, it doesn’t matter how great he is, she’s already smitten with another guy. And it doesn’t matter how wrong he is, she’s still smitten with him. So the story really revolves around Lillie dealing with that incongruity in her own concept of love, and finding out for herself and what it really is. And unfortunately for Jude, that brings him from a place of peace, tranquillity and a sense of assurity about what he does with his life and what he means to the people around him. The opposite to Ismail who comes from a place of chaos, a place of anger and potential place of homicidal rage. So it’s not a good story for Jude.

Can you share how you developed your character (Jude)?

I thought a man who was well-educated coming from New England and educated in the late 1800s would have spoken with a Mid-Atlantic accent. I also think the development of Jude had to do with the way he expresses himself. And this contributes to the voice and structure of the character. I think that Jude thinks before he speaks because he is an introvert, ultimately. He sort of plans everything he says, and his sentences are very thought out. Rarely, does Jude find himself mid-sentence, not knowing where the sentence is going to end. From my perspective that’s completely unusual because I’m someone who likes to ramble. I wanted to portray every aspect of Jude as soft. And this was done by softening up his physical appearance, especially through his clothing and hairstyle. Jude is a guy who doesn’t really care about his appearance on a day-to-day basis. He’s a surgeon and he’s meant to comfort and give peace to those who can’t be comforted. Jude needed to be portrayed as compassionate and intelligent, and the way he speaks and dresses really contributes to that.

The Ottoman Lieutenant is available now on digital download and comes to Blu-ray and DVD from August 7.


Интервью с Беном Кингсли

Exclusive Interview: Ben Kingsley For ‘The Ottoman Lieutenant’

On digital download now, and coming to DVD and Blu-ray from 7th August, is the powerful and gripping action-packed drama, The Ottoman Lieutenant. The film features an all-star cast including Academy Award® winner Ben Kingsley (Gandhi, Schindler’s List), Josh Hartnett (Black Hawk Down, Penny Dreadful), Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones, The Age of Adaline) and Hera Hilmar (Anna Karenina, Davinci’s Demons).

The Ottoman Lieutenant tells the wartime story of a strong-willed woman Lillie (Hera Hilmar) who leaves the United States after meeting Jude (Josh Hartnett) an American doctor who runs a remote medical mission within the exotic Ottoman Empire. There, she finds her loyalty tested to both Jude and the mission’s sagacious founder (Ben Kingsley) when she falls in love with Ismail (Michiel Huisman), a Lieutenant in the Ottoman Imperial Army. Set among the backdrop of World War 1 and tied together with epic battles and mind-blowing fight sequences, Lillie must decide if she wants to be what other people want her to be, or to be herself.

We caught up with Sir Ben Kingsley to talk about the film.
Q: Can you describe the dynamic between your character (Woodruff) and Khalil Bey?

I saw Haluk Bilinger (Khalil Bey) in a film recently, and I loved his performance. It’s an example of our director (Joseph Rueben) really choosing a strong team. It brings me back to the narrative function of each actor on the set. And his narrative function is to bring an utterly unquestionable authority to his role. There was occasion for us as takers of the Hippocratic Oath, to say that his authority doesn’t hold sway in this context. In the story, it’s really two authorities meeting each other.

Q: What is your character’s role in the film? 

The essential key to performance is to appreciate why you are in the story. The rest, oddly enough, will come second. My role in this film is very simple. By simple, I mean it’s a small target, meaning it’s hard to hit. In the process of filmmaking and meeting, and working with our leading lady, Hera Hilmar (Lillie), I had to understand how to enhance her character’s journey. It’s no good by trying to get the audience to like her by sentimentalizing your role. What you have to do in her journey is to give her hurtle after hurtle to overcome. Then you have the growth of a character that’s worth watching, so that was my gift to her as a colleague, and in my performance to bring to her an unchallengeable despair and grief. The more I can focus on my character’s losses, addictions, and anaesthesia of the soul, the more the audience can see Hara will never get past Woodruff and prove to him that she’s a hero. So that’s why my character exists. My character is immovable and very set in his ways. Overcome by alcoholism and drug addiction, he is dedicated not to remember how beautiful life was. However, Lillie reminds of that by saving his life.
Q: Describe your experience on set working with the cast?

I work a lot with first time actors. And it’s really good to be in the company of those who are certain not taking their first steps, but taking steps along a journey of which they are approaching with great intelligence and dedication. It’s a great pleasure to be in the company of Hara (Lillie), who is very focused and concentrated and a good colleague. I just learn my lines. You never know how the scene is going to go until you meet with your fellow actor. And then the chemistry emerges. And you think, what can I bring to this performance to make them look good and serve their journey. So, that’s how I work.

Q: What was it like working with Joseph Rueben (director)?

I had never worked with Rueben before. He has a good energy and his ego is in the right place, in that he’s not as interested in power as much as he is interested his in filmmaking. Joe trusts his actors. I think a good film set democratizes those who are inhabited, so that we collaborate well, and I think creatively, under the directorship of Joe. A good director will give the impression, whether he/she’s aware of it or not, that he/she knows the name of every person on crew; that there is a vested interest in every member of the crew, and a common interest in making the film run. And Joe does just that.

The Ottoman Lieutenant is available now on Digital Download and DVD and Blu-ray from 7 August.


The Ottoman Lieutenant - Behind The Scenes (Universal Pictures) HD



"The Ottoman Lieutenant" brushes over Armenian Genocide details

Historical events sometimes put a cloud over a movie that it can never shake. That certainly is the case with the drama "The Ottoman Lieutenant". Historians are in agreement that the Armenian Genocide did in fact happen and was perpetuated by the Ottoman government and later the country of Turkey from around 1914 to 1923. This film glosses over that fact and just can’t be taken seriously because of it. Other than that, it is lukewarm romance set during the time of World War I, Flix66 said in its review if the film.

The article reads on:

Lillie (Hera Hilmar) is an idealistic American nurse, who in the beginning of the film witnesses a seriously hurt black man being turned away from a white hospital in Philadelphia in 1914. She is troubled by this fact and wants a purpose in her life. She attends a lecture by a doctor named Jude (Josh Hartnett) who works at a hospital in the middle of nowhere nestled in the Ottoman Empire. He talks of all the good that he does with little money and the community appreciates it. Lillie confronts him afterwards and asks if he would turn away a hurt black man. He responds that they treat everyone and no one is turned away.

This spurs Lillie into action. She has found her calling and she wants to donate her dead brother’s car to the hospital and help out there as well. This does not go over well with her parents. They believe that place is not a place for a woman. They humored her with nursing school, but this is going too far. She leaves anyway. She runs into problems in transporting the car though. It is a rough terrain and she loses her escort. Luckily for her, she meets the title character. He is Lieutenant Ismail Veil (Michiel Huisman) of the Ottoman Imperial Army. He takes her to an ancient mosque where she is blown away by its architecture. She remembers him when she is told that a military escort would be needed to get her where she needs to go.

This starts an odyssey where the two get confronted by some Armenians who almost kill them and steal the car and the medical supplies. You certainly get an uncomfortable feeling in the initial portrayal of the Armenians. They look unwashed and they have no scruples of stealing what is not theirs and killing when they see fit.

The duo does finally get to the hospital. They are greeted by Jude and Dr Garrett Woodruff (Ben Kingsley). Garrett founded the hospital with his wife with the intention of treating anyone who comes in. Jude is skeptical of Ismail and his intentions. He knows there is more that meets the eye with the arrangement of the escort. He would be right. Garrett is not impressed at first with the skills of Lillie as a nurse. But if you’ve seen any movie at all, you know how that will eventually turn out. Garrett is also still mourning the loss of his wife, but that is mainly put in there to give his character some depth.

Both Ismail and Jude fall in love with Lillie. She is drawn at first to the principles of Jude, but she is mainly swept away by the mystery of Ismail. You see, Ismail is Muslim and isn’t really supposed to cavort with a Christian woman in Lillie. I never quite bought into their romance. They both are good looking, but there seemed to be something missing there.

All of this is happening as war approaches on the world stage and locally. The Turks don’t trust the Armenians. The Russians are also coming and the Turks believe the Armenians will join up with them. Jude and Garrett do their part by storing guns for the Armenians. Ismail does scouting for the army. He is sent on a couple dangerous missions. Throughout the film, Lillie does narration and explains how war is bad and the plight of the Ottoman government. It is a bit much at times. Lillie helpfully mentions one time that the mission that Ismail is on is dangerous where he has to blow up a supply of ammunition that the Russians had captured. It is quite comical that this valuable stash is hardly guarded. I guess Lillie was given bad information.

"The Ottoman Lieutenant" does boast gorgeous scenery. Turkey looks great on the screen. It looks like something off a postcard. But that does not hide the moldiness from this knock off of “The English Patient”. It wants to be a romance with an inconvenient war thrown in and a dash of earnestness from the perky American nurse. As mentioned previously, the specter of the Armenian Genocide hangs over the film. It is brushed over in this movie where basically war is the convenient scapegoat there. That just isn’t right.
