Amazing movie
10 December 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Hi, I have seen this movie and it impresses me from all the degrees and angles. The beauty of direction, acting of the kid (Jules) and the grand father; the school teacher his dad etc...

I was really touched by the entire movie; all scenes are nicely crafted. Ahh when the horse dies.... "I want to cry... You are not the only one, kid".

hmm the kids also talk Bin Laden.. and then how they sneak in the chopper to the mountain :)

and many more small scene makes the film a great piece of work.

Thanks for making such a lovely, innocent and beautiful movie. Regards, Mukesh
