Moves not like a story but a poem, and the images it presents to us are unforgettable.

Audience Reviews for Kandahar: Le soleil derrière la lune

An interesting movie that centralizes on a woman's journey to save her sister in a country she has not been to since childhood. Niloufar Pazira stars. Worthy!

KANDAHAR was a semi-documentary movie that told the journey of an Afghani female journalist resident in Canada, Nafas, to reach the city of Kandahar, where she hoped to rescue her sister from committing suicide during an eclipse.The plot was very thin and the acting was frequently distracting, so it made it not a great drama. What was great, was the cinematography, filmed in the deserts of Afghanistan.. I liked the quote in the movie, when the doctor character said:"For women, hope is the day that they will be seen.The movie was a real and brutal portrayal of how women and children were treated in these countries. Disgusting.
