All Critics (14) | Top Critics (1)

An erratic and obvious fable on how girls and boys contend with hefty matters of war, education and the decent treatment of others.

Top Critic

Like Bjork's character, Selma, in Lars von Trier's Dancer In The Dark, Bakhtay is so heart-crushingly innocent that it rips your heart out to see her hurt. She, like Selma, is too clueless to help herself.

Dazed and Confused

Stretching this to feature length was a sad detraction from a clever and emotionally effective story.

What Culture

Vividly depicting the struggles of life in Afghanistan, 19-year-old filmmaker Makhmalbaf uses a story about young children to explore much bigger issues. The film is scruffy and simple, but packs a powerful punch.

Shadows on the Wall

Although this film has got a very serious point to make, Hana Makhalbaf has an enviable lightness of touch and always remembers to keep the story front and centre.

Eye for Film

Audience Reviews for Buda as sharm foru rikht (Buddha Collapsed Out of Shame)

½

"Buddha, No, God". "Die, or you won't be free". sure, slightly too generic however it was a nice allegory, and the kids playing terrorists then Americans were very funny, as well as ironic knowing that by opposing Americans they would be considered Terrorists which is what they call Baktay and Abbas when shooting them in the forests whith their silly weapons. The shot following the origami boat as it went down the stream was also fabulous, and so were some of the cllose ups on the children.

Great allegory, even if it gets too obvious in the end. Die or you won't be free.
