At 5 in afternoon (Critics)
Noqre's old father dragged the whole family (Noqre, sister, sister's baby & himself) on a journey out of Kabul. He made the whole family leave the Kabul because he believed Kabul is now a city full of Blasphemy & in hands of Infidel (Americans). The women wear no hijab & live in sin! He put the whole family in a carriage pulled by a mule & he was directing the mule sitting on the rider sit going to an Islamic Sity where women wear veil!
Despite all the begging of sister for him not to relocate the family because her husband did not know they were leaving, so he could not find her, yet the father moved the family. In the middle of this journey, somewhere in the middle of nowhere land, after the baby died (frozen cold), they burned the carriage to build a fire for heat & many other hardaches, they reach an Old man with his donkey lying on the desert sand, dying away........
A Woman with dreams of becomming Afghanistan's President......
Who ended up in the desert in the middle of nowhere.........
2 US Choppers fly by & pass them by................. The Mule Carriage with the old father, Noqre, sister & baby riding in it, slowly travel by..........
My Favorite Part of The Movie
My favorite part from this movie was this part,
The old father was digging the ground (with a big stone) to bury his grand son (baby) who froze to death (because of the journey), while talking to the old man who is sitting on the desert sand next to his lying Donkey who is dying.
Check out the conversation between these two old men, the Old Father (F) & The Old Man (O), it went something like this:
F: What happened to your donkey?
O: He is dying!
F: Why Father?
O: Because of hunger & thirst!
F: Kabul is gone......... its in the hand of infidels & women with no hijab live in sin........
O: Country is going to hell.........
F: That's why I am taking the family to live in an Islamic town.......
O: I see
F: Where are you going?
O: To Qandahar.
O: I left my life in Kabul to go to Qandahar with my donkey to find Mullah Omar!
O: I want to go to Council of Taliban's meeting to attend, so they will not hand Osama Bin Laden to Infidels!
O: Ye, Osama is a muslim, we shouldn't hand him to infidel........
F: You are too late father
O: Why brother?
F: Mullah Omar & Osama fled
O: I want to save a muslim brother
F: Too late father......... you are too late
F: Taliban defeated.............. country is lost, infidel taken over everywhere...
F: Now what?
O: I am lost!
F: What will you do father?
O: I see no village ahead, no resting place, & my donkey is dying!
F: So what?
O: I just sit here, I am lost, I sit here in middle of nowhere......
F: What will you do father?
O: I am lost brother, I just sit here in desert............
F: Where to go?
O: I just sit here............
And 2 old muslim men sit in the middle of desert in the middle of nowhere land......... wondering where to go, while the two girls & the mule go to the nearby well to bring some drinking water!
This scene was awesome! Time has passed these two old timers by......... they are still living in a place, out of time.........with no where to go to............. prisoners of their own circumstances!
I strongly recommend you to see this movie on Sundance channel:
