i have to disagree with the opinion that "experts" were required to deliever commentary. i valued the opinions of those who were now living there. they were quite articulate. fascinating movie with many striking images/contrasts/gut checks. wonderful cinematography and melody as well. some of the things that linger: 1. a radio broadcasting news of Britain's troop commitment & 3 billion pounds/(dollars?) in aid toward the removal of saddam hussein in iraq - cash that would have gone so much further in afghanistan. 2. mir's father explaining his recent acquisition of meal (cow's stomach lining) which he told he picked up from a local butcher who was about to throw it away.3. an obvious appreciation for the American effort to oust the taliban by the local hazari's.4. that sickeningly empty feeling when the camera's hold going back to the cavernous territories where the statues once stood.
After being bombarded from day to day by media one would expect to be immune to feeling sorry for war-victims.This film, however, is able to slash through the urban shield and really create an impact in how you think about the afghan people. As many others have commented, this movie is real art because it is an mirror, you see your self, your mates and community reflected in the film. It is seldom you see a movie that create you wanna learn more about the faith of the folks in the film. Highly suggested to everyone in a time where Afghanistan is about to drown in another disasters around the world.It is also hard not to feel ashamed about the complaints folks create in our part of the globe when you see the joy and happiness of those deprived of everything.( National Geographic Channel is showing the movie in its No Borders Series this summer of 2005 )
I loved this documentary. It was very touching and depicted the life of the young man in a very true way. Showing us all that this innocent kid still should smile and have dreams that there was still hope. The scenery was still pretty even amongst the disaster that happened there. I enjoyed that there was no sound another than the voices of the folks talking which made it more real. It takes a lot of guts to go out and movie tragedy, poverty and devastation. This movie makes you grateful that you are where you are and it gives you the strength to go on with your own "nothing" complaints when you see a tiny man smiling and laughing and being grateful for what he does have. My hats off to those who had the courage to go out and catch a various view on a sad situation. I want I should search that family and support them.
