eye opener
31 December 2011 | by filmalamosaSee all my reviews

This is an excellent documentary.

Having a young male lover in Afghanistan is apparently a common perk for the rich and famous. It is ubiquitous among tribal chiefs and warlords.

So much for the idea that homosexual interest is confined to 4% of the population.

The UN and Frontline's efforts are pretty futile when stacked up against a centuries old cultural tradition. What is the UN going to do? Maybe they can get the International Criminal Court involved (sarcasm). While they are at it they can include second hand smoke and carbon polluting energy in new types of cases to be heard.

Good eye opener watch it.
