Movie Info

A recently orphaned young Kurdish-French woman travels to Kurdistan to find her mother's village, likely destroyed during the Anfal genocide. On her journey she meets two American film students who are travelling to remote villages screening Charlie Chaplin films. They decide to help her search, an undertaking that brings them to the war-weary Mount Qandil, dubbed by the locals the Kurdish Bermuda Triangle, along the Iraqi-Turkish-Iranian borders. - See (c) Official Site

There's a simplicity and directness in "Chaplin of the Mountains" that keeps it aloft; its wholehearted sincerity feels much fresher than any number of slicker, more cynical films.

A charmingly shaggy road trip with clear political undertones, "Chaplin of the Mountains" winds its way across the Iraqi Kurdistan region, using silent movies to give voice to the troubles of a war-battered people.

In real life, this makes a nice story. As a movie, it is a cavalcade of cliches.

Deadened by milquetoast characters, uninspired landscape photography, and no perceptible stakes.

A road movie through liberated Kurdish territory in northern Iraq. The personality of the wonderful Kurdish people shines through.
