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!!!

This movie was awesome. Despite subtitles and an old theatre that you had a hard time seeing over heads the movie was true to the novel and beautifully done. Excellent cast.
