An interesting blend of classic cinema tropes set in the extremely specific (and rarely discussed) liberated Kurdistan.

May 30, 2013 | Rating: 7.4/10 | Full Review…

An amusing, touching and subtly transportive film set in a place you'll probably never get to visit.

August 28, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

A solid foreign twist on gunslingers and damsels in distress

June 6, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

As well as being another contemporary example of gutsy, engrossing drama coming from foreign filmmakers, it is also telling that we have to look to foreign language films such as this and Wadjda for female characters worth a damn.

If you get right down to it Baran represents the new sheriff attempting to bring law and order to an unruly and violent town while dallying with the local schoolmistress. The result is a film of great cultural interest plus suspense and humour.

One of the notable achievements Saleem's quietly surprising film is a combination of off-beat comedy and a strong sense of menace and danger.
