Critic Reviews for Marooned in Iraq
No excerpt available.
It's a movie that works on many levels, including symbolic and metaphorical.
Impresses with its varied notes and clear understanding of the powerful entertainment value in a road picture spryly maneuvering across heavily mined terrain.
It puts a face and name to people and events we hear about nightly on CNN.
Not surprising that it's more tragicomedy than yukfest.
Audience Reviews for Marooned in Iraq
If you enjoy foreign films, this is a good one. A fine example of the passion of the Kurdish people.
[font=Century Gothic][color=darkslateblue]"Marooned in Iraq" takes place in the Kurd dominated regions of Iran and Iraq, towards the end of the Iran/Iraq war. An older musician named Mirza goes in search of his ex(?)-wife, along with his two sons - one unmarried, one married seven times over, with eleven daughters and desperately wants another wife to finally give him a son.(The latter son is in desperate need of feminist teachings. Considering that women cannot sing out in public, perhaps the whole region is, also.) What happens is a journey funny, dangerous and touching - as the trio wanders on the edge of a war zone and witness the destruction that Saddam Hussein has wrought first hand. They also meet up with characters who try and profit from the war plus those whose lives the war has changed for the worst. [/color][/font]
