News & Interviews for Osama
Critic Reviews for Osama
The first film shot entirely in Afghanistan since the rise and fall of the Taliban, and it's a heartbreaking look back at life under that regime.
We've heard so much about the cruelty of the Taliban that we think we've heard it all. But there's something about seeing one small human story played out that is still overwhelming.
Great films like Osama, thoughtfully considered, give us the ability to withhold blanket judgments and come that much closer to the truth.
Audience Reviews for Osama
The first Afghan film since the fall of the Taliban, Osama is a deeply harrowing and touching movie of great historical importance set during a monstrous regime that seems to have existed centuries ago, only it hasn't been that long that it came to an end.
Holy cow this is not a film to watch if you want a feel-good movie! The horrible life that these women (young and old) had to endure in this country boggles the mind. It's an amazing insight on a whole entire different culture that needs to never ever flourish. Very well done film. Very depressing though.
A miserable look at a girl named Osama living in the Taliban as a boy; what a crappy existence, but a well-made film.
