I watched this film 30 odd years ago and whilst I enjoyed it it didn't blow me away. I watched it again on Netflix about two weeks ago and was amazed at how prescient it was. An outstanding film.

Will never forget seeing this film, nor this line spoken spoken. Alas, truth is stranger than fiction. And more alarming, I think.

Life indeed is terribly restrictive for females in Afghan rural areas. These restrictions are cultural to the area, not prescribed by Islam though.

I still cannot fathom why liberals support Islam when so many atrocities occur in it's name. So many human rights violated.

Sam Faeth, we saw the house that he constructed for his parents on the shore of Lake Geneva, thanks to brother Tom Ingold. It was much less grand than this. Indeed it was of a very modest size, with intact built-in furniture. While it had no windows on the side that looked out onto a major road, it had many views over the Lake and a lovely rooftop terrace. The ceilings were very low.

The book that made me shed tears, when I was 11 years old on 5th Grade at Erasmo Braga School in Dourados, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil, was "Meu pé de Laranja Lima" written by José Mauro de Vasconcelos. It is a story about the relathionship between a boy and a Lima Orange Tree. It is an excellent book for 5th graders!

"The wonderful adventures of Nils" (Selma Lagerlöf); almost all of Astrid Lindgren's books. / And Annie M. G. Schmidt (Dutch author) should be translated in English. Fantastic!
01/17/2017 at 12:46
I will always remember Wilbur the pig, Charlotte the spider and Fern the girl. I read it as a child in Germany. It had the same illustration as the one here and the translation was spot on!
