Writer/director Siddiq Barmak had put non-professional actors to bring the tale to life. All of them did a remarkable job, especially young Marina Golbahari, who captured the terror of her character with such precision.
This film was a warning that there must be no more regimes such as the Taliban in Afghanistan. I hope this film will wake up people around the world to demand that women should have equal rights just as man, and to dress however they pleased no matter what country they live in. That's my opinion.
