Stretching this to feature length was a sad detraction from a clever and emotionally effective story.

Although this film has got a very serious point to make, Hana Makhalbaf has an enviable lightness of touch and always remembers to keep the story front and centre.

An emotionally engaging, impressively directed drama with a remarkable performance from Nikbaht Noruz.

It may be naively done, but it still packs a punch.

As the brave moppet, Nikbakht Noruz is tremendous.

Throughout, Makhmalbaf juggles extraordinary scenes of observation and tension, filling the screen with indelible imagery...

Builds up an overwrought symbolism that fails to hit the mark dramatically.

What the film says about contemporary Afghanistan is unclear, other than life is tough -- tougher if you're a woman, tougher still if you're a girl.

Provides a heartfelt portrait of the desperate conditions endured by children in today's Afghanistan.

Startling and original, Makhmalbaf's film draws some frightening conclusions about the effect of war on young minds.

The symbolism can be heavy-handed, but the inexperienced actors are engaging.

Audience Reviews for Buda as sharm foru rikht (Buddha Collapsed Out of Shame)

Great allegory, even if it gets too obvious in the end. Die or you won't be free.
