Critic Reviews for Turtles Can Fly
Despite its fanciful title, Turtles Can Fly leads viewers into a slough of despond, one in which not just hope is strangled but virtually any possibility for simple human kindness.
Riveting, depressing and eye-opening, Turtles Can Fly is a movie about an Iraq that the news hasn't shown us.
A lyrical and heartbreaking reminder of the human toll of war.
A story that renders into poetry the sad facts of survival for child victims of war.
Audience Reviews for Turtles Can Fly
A movie of the lost. Circumstances place some of us in the most hellish of places simply by the random lot of being born in particular countries. In this case, we are in the no man's land of Kurdistan and we know the Americans are about to invade Iraq right through the region from Turkey. In an information society, these are people without the very basic information. Where will the threat come from and when?
Best film I have seen in a long time, Involves the boarder of Iraq, Iran and Turkey\, where homeless children are trying to survive. One Young man is the head of everything, he wheels and deals in everything. These children get paid for digging land mines. A very interesting film that all should see. Nothing less then 5 stars.
An interesting story about Iraqi kids living in a refugee camp on the border of Turkey anticipating the Iraq War and hoping for the fall of Sadaam. The kid actors are actually refugees and improvised a lot of scenes, so it is neat and effective. The story itself can be depressing, but it is well made and shows a different side of a conflict.
