Did You Know?


Capitaine Antarès Bonassieu: While I sleep here, a man comes and kills me in the night. He takes me off and burns me. You come and say, "Allah took him," but a man killed me. You don't see Allah do it, so you can't be sure.
Ado vilage (moto): Yes, I can.
Capitaine Antarès Bonassieu: How can you be sure of something you don't see and never have?
Ado vilage (moto): Look over there. It's dark and you don't see the men. But with your goggles, you see them. If you don't see the men, it doesn't mean they're not there, it means it's dark and you have no goggles.

One hour 40 minutes of my life I will never get back
3 November 2017 | by derek-eynonSee all my reviews

To be fair the movie has TREMENDOUS atmosphere, and the acting is very believable both from the French Troops cast, and the Taliban.

The story, however, is incoherent in the extreme, to the point of nonsensical.

A bit like (Kubrick) The Shining , or Event Horizon, the print as delivered makes no sense. Possibly bad editing, or just a bad screenplay.
