Movie Info

Following the international hit The Boy who Plays on the Buddhas of Bamiyan, The Boy Mir will cover not one year but ten. It will track the cheeky, enthusiastic Mir from a childish eight to a fully grown eighteen-year-old. Over those ten years, it will be a journey into early adulthood in one of the toughest places on earth; a journey that mirrors the current and vitally important story of Afghanistan. -- (C) Seventh Art Productions

It's overlong and not incredibly enlightening, but it's compassionate enough to hold the attention.

Mir gets under your skin in ways that are memorable and poignantly real.

If you've seen the first film, you'll want to come back to see Mir's progress through life. And no matter what happens, it seems, the smile remains.

[Offers] an interesting peek at everyday rural Afghan life in circumstances still unstable but past immediate crisis

An intimate portrait of a poor boy's progress towards manhood in a troubled country.

The stark mountainous beauty that framed the Buddhas remains a terrific backdrop for Grabsky's doc.

A film that is simplicity itself yet moving and revealing.

What emerges is an unadorned chronicle of grinding poverty...

As enjoyable as 10 years in wartorn Afghanistan can be.

Conveys an understanding of Afghan culture better than anything we've seen yet. Well worth its ninety minute screen time, and a lot more.
