    wow one of the greatest movie i ever seen.it has some real live things that happen in poor countries in old days.Unfolds with the serenity of a fable but underneath it draws intelligent, deeply troubled connections between the personal, political, and spiritual.

    The film's critique of Islam is offered without rancor, and it's evident that Masud loves all his characters, whatever their viewpoints.

    The film draws careful parallels between orthodoxies and in his own quiet way, Masud, a devout Muslim, level his critique at repressive political regimes and religious doctrines, and those who dangerously confuse one with the other.
