Denise H (gb) wrote: Winner for Best Film at the Montreal Film Festival. Romantic and poignant film about two young people from different countries and different cultures. The young man (Latif) is an Iranian. Rahmat (a girl in disguise) is an Afghanistan refugee who must pretend to be male so she can work and feed her extended family while her father recuperates from a job accident. As the story develops Latif learns of the hardships Rahmat endures and does everything he can (including the sale of his ID papers) to help her. Watch for the burqa and lost shoe scene near the end of the movie. Speaks volumes even though no words are exchanged.

Navin J (jp) wrote: the remake with Robin Williams, Nathan Long and Hank Azaria is sooo much better than this. Not sure if it's because its old and a lot dated, but that sense of funny was missing and the musical numbers that were absent.... but yeah, couldn't bring myself to watch the entire movie.
Anders A (jp) wrote: Both Harvey Keitel and Robert De Niro playing setting real momentum behind their career as actors. Enbarking into the Italian small-time mafia, Scorsese manages to captures us into their lives of problems and culture. Robert De Niro really loses it and practically giving a fuck, causing a life of hell for everyone around him.
