  • What started as an exercise in essentialism is quickly revealed to be just the opposite, and this film would have been more interesting had Murphy delved into the complexity of the Afghan women's lives rather than focusing on the Americans' generosity.

    [font=Century Gothic]"Beyond Belief" is a moving and inspiring documentary about two mothers from suburban Boston, Patti Quigley and Susan Retik, whose husbands were killed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.(In fact, they were both pregnant at the time.) Feeling empathy for the war widows in Afghanistan(numbering about 500,000), they start a charity to help them become self-sufficient and to inform the public about their plight. Even after the fall of the Taliban, women are still generally repressed in the country and must still wear the restrictive burqa in public.[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]To make the world a better place, the two women's journey starts with a three day bicycle ride starting out from the World Trade Center site on September 9, 2004 to Boston, to raise funds for their charity. That is only the beginning as they talk about going to Afghanistan to see the conditions for themselves, and are not even deterred by the kidnapping of an aid worker.[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"Beyond Belief" is the kind of movie that restores one's faith in humanity, showing exactly how love and compassion can accomplish so much more than bombs.
