Critic Reviews for The Breadwinner
Visually captivating even when it's narratively uneven, the animated film "The Breadwinner" tells the story of a brave girl living in Afghanistan under the Taliban in the lead-up to the 2001 U.S. invasion.
One can only salute the filmmakers' ambition and seriousness of purpose, but it's hard to see who "The Breadwinner" audience is.
While the film may suffer when it comes to the details, it does have a certain undeniable power in its broad strokes.
In its power and its beauty, "The Breadwinner' reminds us that animation can be every bit as much of a medium for adults as it is for children.
Harsh disappointments befall the characters, and they are depicted frankly, but in a way that encourages young viewers to form an affinity with the characters rather than cringe at terror.
