One great movie. A real chance to experience life in another culture. A truly interesting and absorbing movie because it is based on a true story. Don't let the title fool you as it has nothing to do with the famous Osama.
Quite simply one of the greatest movies every made. If you don't understand parts of it I suggest you read the book and it all will become clear. This is a great movie on so many levels, photography, story, music and more. Don't underestimate it and after you read the book , read the making of 2001.
