Black Humorous Propaganda
9 March 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In the late 80's, in the small village of Amedi, the Kurd electrician Ako (Nazmî Kirik) is forced to leave his family and join the Iraqi army to fight in Basra against Iran. When he is assigned to escort the coffin of a deceased soldier to his family, the crosses the country with an Arab driver and plots a scheme to desert the army and bring his wife and son to Paris.

"Kilomètre Zero" is a film of the Kurdish director Hiner Saleem with a black humorous propaganda against Saddam Hussein's regime but unfortunately with bad taste. I did not see the point of the cow defecating in front of the camera, or the offense against the flag of Iraq since Ako's attitude is neither dramatic nor funny and the flags of all countries should be respected. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "Quilômetro Zero" ("Zero Kilometer")
