Storyline

A young girl zealously wants to go to school and learn to read and write. Almost everywhere she is met with hostility or indifference. The only young boy who takes her to his school is thrown out by the teacher, because helping her prevented him from coming in time. - It must not go unnoticed that the schoolgirls and the female teacher are likewise hostile toward this girl. None of them want her in the classroom. On her way home she and other girls are taken as prisoners by boys playing talibans. They tear her school book to pieces (or rather what was left of it after the schoolgirls had done the same thing.) The "taliban boys" threaten to stone their girl prisoners (although in this movie there is little real physical violence against girls). The girl's attempts end in complete failure. (Whatever moods of the scenes throughout the entire movie, the acting by the central girl is really impressive.) Written by Max Scharnberg, Stockholm, Sweden

Maybe the most touching movie you will see this year
23 November 2008 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

It all starts with the Talibans blowing the Buddha statues away. This is somewhat the platform for the rest.

A little Afghani girl wants to go to school. She can't afford a notebook and a pencil, but she finds her way. But there are other obstacles. One of them is this boy gang, who is playing Talibans and Americans. But are they really playing? One of the most moving scenes is there the girl physically tries to find her place at school, but is rejected. The tempo is slow according to action standards, but the pictures are often beautiful and full of drama in a way action is light-years behind.
