    It is hard to watch a movie that is mostly sub-titled, you have to really keep up, or you will miss alot. The sentences go by too fast sometimes. Luckily I saw it at home and could rewind. After watching it and understanding it, as it was a little confusing, I really liked it. It was very sad and I cried at the end, probably cause I was happy that things worked out the way they did at the end, but all in all it was good. I hope the young boys are doing ok who played in this film.

    Excellent film! I read the novel, my husband didn't but he said he thoroughly enjoyed the film as well. Gives genuine insight into the basic lives of the Afganistan people, also explains how the Taliban was born. I loved the imagery of the kite weaving thru the story -- taking the innocence of children into the flight of politics and terrorism. Outstanding in everyway!!!
