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.

November 6, 2002 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Moves not like a story but a poem, and the images it presents to us are unforgettable.

March 29, 2002 | Rating: 4/5

Its themes are universal, its performances are effective in their simplicity and the direction is confident and unfussy.

March 14, 2002 | Rating: 5/5

If the dramatics of the movie fail to engage as fully as they should, Kandahar remains fascinating as a piece of lyrical journalism.

March 1, 2002

Intense, anecdotal and empowered by perversely beautiful imagery.

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!
