Simply outstanding children's film made by a German and a Turkmen.
13 August 2007 | by FilmCriticLalitRaoSee all my reviews

What can one say about a children's film which is directed by two directors from two different cultures who specialize exclusively in made for children films ? Watching "Karamkum" directed by German Arend Agthe and Turkmen Usman Saparov one would surely say that this film is a good effort in promoting international harmony,understanding and peace.Karakum is a fun filled joyride which takes its two young teenage protagonists from a remote desert to a distant seashore.The unique lesson that can be learned from this film is that two people need not know a common language to communicate with each other. Communication is an emotional act that can also be done using common wisdom and sign language as shown in this film.Karakum has plenty of suspense which is bound to keep all the viewers glued to the edge of their seats.If you are fed up that your children are not watching good Children's films this is the film for you and your children.Watching this film there is an even likelihood that you might even forget all your silly flicks like home alone,lion king,south park,Simpsons etc.
