From acclaimed director Bahman Ghobadi (A Time For Drunken Horses) comes the first film shot in Iraq since the fall of Saddam Hussein, about children struggling to survive in an endless war zone.
Dans un camp de réfugiés kurdes, au nord de l'Irak, quelques semaines avant l'intervention américaine, un jeune garçon débrouillard prend sous sa protection deux orphelins accompagnés d'un tout jeune enfant.
For those of us who live a sheltered life, with all kinds of material securities...it is good to take a look across the world and see a layer of the other lives out there... A beautiful story line, a wonderful location, director who's making the best of this chance, but most of all, it's the children, the children that make most of the cast...they were amazing...great...wonderful...and real... This film is definitely worth seeing...
The subject matter of the film is so sad, though I fear truthful. Anyone interested in the plight of refugees especially children I would recommend this film to. I didn't realize it would have subtitles. Also the subtitles did not fit on my TV screen so I watched it on my computer with two others.(Glad I love both of them!)
