Critic Reviews for Kandahar: Le soleil derrière la lune
These lunar landscapes and grotesque visions are as strange and haunting as a science-fiction fantasy. Would that it were.
It's a simple series of snapshots from a country in pain.
Moves not like a story but a poem, and the images it presents to us are unforgettable.
Its themes are universal, its performances are effective in their simplicity and the direction is confident and unfussy.
If the dramatics of the movie fail to engage as fully as they should, Kandahar remains fascinating as a piece of lyrical journalism.
Audience Reviews for Kandahar: Le soleil derrière la lune
It is true that Makhmalbaf tends to repeat himself sometimes (like with a redundant voice-over), but he casts a powerful look at a country living under the rule of Taliban and dominated by poverty and religious fundamentalism - which forced women into complete subjugation.
An interesting movie that centralizes on a woman's journey to save her sister in a country she has not been to since childhood. Niloufar Pazira stars. Worthy!
Weird, didn't like it.
