Some years ago I sew a movie from Afganistan, the title
After saw it I thought that the movie could titled WHAT IS A SISTER? or simply "A FEELING"
I thought I have seen the better movies, but after KANDAHAR I had changed my mind.
Is the story of a woman -Nafa- who got away from Afganisthan with her family, but her father and sister couldn´t do it, because her sister is hurted by a bomb.
After too much years she decided to return to Afganisthan because her sister writte a letter to tell her that she will cut her veins the day of the solar eclipse, because she is desesperated because of the Taliban regimen.
Nafa want to get to Kandahar -where her sister live- before the eclipse, but it is very difficult to returne to the country and then she have to pay to some people in order to cross the frontier and go to Kandahar.
In the country she have to simulate she is the wife of an afgan men, and after that she simulate is the mother of a boy, and after that she simulate that is the relative of a woman who is going to get marry.
Is a sad story but she said beautiful phrases about what does mean to be a sister.
The movie make me cry, maybe because is very good, maybe because when I saw it I had lost my sister.
If anyone at EC see the movie please give me your coments.
If anyone have a sister, please tell what does she mean for you.
