Heart Warming Glimpse!
8 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Important Movie! I loved to see Afghanistan a different way than what has been shown us the last 10 years or maybe even longer! This movie is a heart opener for anyone interested in Youth, Skateboarding or Afghanistan! It gives a good view into the lives of children and teenagers in general but also the teen girls, who shall not be seen skateboarding in public when they reach teenage age. The Australian main figure is a great candidate to be watching as he goes through the limits of being a western and having the desire to help the country in a very unconventional way. I enjoyed watching Cairo Foster, Louisa Menke and the other two experiencing the country, going through thoughts and views about the middle east and coming to own results. There is also a German ramp builder introduced which I adored, watching him work with the kids was one of the highlights for me!
