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

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

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