"stories remain in our hearts even when all else is gone". it's early 2000s, it's the taliban controlled part of kabul, a pre-teen girl's life which has already been difficult becomes more when her father is arrested. to make ends meet & look after the family she has to disguise as a boy & get odd jobs done. a toddler brother, an elder sister & a mother are the rest of the family.
inspite of the scarce resources these filmmakers get, the end product is always so beautiful.
not just feature films, this year has been really great for animation too, with coco & loving vincent as the co-nominess for @theacademy #oscars2018
a beautiful animation is sometimes what you need to lift your spirits up. the story though gets a little mixed up & confusing due to the subplot (the story the girl keeps telling in the movie) but when all falls in place and you look behind and think about it, you wonder, what a beautiful movie.
make some time for this beautiful tale of a girl trapped in a land with people who are too f****d up to realize the importance of the women who brought them to this world & the ones who could & would one day bring greatness back to their cursed land.
