The Greek History is rich in stories and we do get to see a piece of resistance, but while it is quite one sided mostly, there is also a light side shown on the enemies face. Not to mention that there are some very bad hombres ... wait I mean bad people who fight or rather betray their own folk (the Greeks that is).
Cliches are there and the story is predictable, but the pathos can be quite animating and can get one riled up too. It's not as insane as "This is madness"/"This is Sparta", but that was more of an action movie overall. So while I can not vouch for historical accuracy on many things, it is not how I watched this anyway. While very dear to the hearts of Greeks in general, this also can be seen and enjoyed as piece of resistance and human revolt against dictatorship and "evil"

In 1821, during the first year of the Greek War for Independence and the rebellion against the Ottoman Empire, the twenty-year-old Greek woman, Anna-Christina, falls for the conflicted Turkish officer, Colonel Tariq, who is having second thoughts about his compatriots' brutal approach to governing. However, Tariq and Anna's fledgeling romance is bound to bring suffering not only to her family but also her community. As a result, bent on retaliating, Christina summons up the courage to take part in the Revolution, and, unintentionally, she becomes a local symbol of the ever-growing Greek resistance movement, inspiring her fellow brothers and sisters-in-arms to take action. But, sooner or later, Christina will have to face her long-buried feelings for the man who still cares for her; a pivotal moment that will lead to tragic results. —Nick Riganas
