British love story
Whatever your views on the war in Afghanistan, this film is an absolute must see. It does not seek to glamorise the cause or glorify the British and American forces. It does not say “them bad us good”, and conversely it does not say the allies were arrogant pricks, barging in to a country without rhyme or reason. To do so would miss the real point of the film: which is love, love through adversity.
We meet a team of British soldiers holding a position against the Taliban somewhere above the Kajaki dam. However, the presence of the Taliban is merely peripheral and during the course of the film they instead face four very apposite enemies: boredom; incompetence; lack of resources; and a valley full of old Russian land mines. What holds them together through the hardships they endure, both very real and perceived, is love – and lots and lots of banter.
Kajaki does away with the traditional paraphernalia of war films: billowing musical scores, slow-mos, and poignant flashbacks. Quite simply, it doesn’t have to, because it isn’t one. Instead we are given a film that is clear, crisp and clean; that is relentless, remorseless and uncompromising. The acting is impeccable, the direction and production sublime. It is tense, tragic, uplifting and heart-breaking all at once. Quite simply, it is a love story: love for your country, love for the job, love for your mates. Go see it and be prepared to have your mind blown open by what true love can achieve.
totally authentic, non US drama, humbling heroism
I had heard about this film, but missed it on brief release at local multiplex, my pal mike by chance saw it advertised in local small independent cinema, so we went, and were amazed to find that not only one of the producers, but two actors and the real life stu pearson who lost both his legs were there, and available for Q and A afterwards; I can only say I was dumbstruck with admiration for the guys in it, frustrated beyond belief at how our government didn’t supply them properly and humbled by stu’s lack of bitterness; all this had to be done courtesy of Jordanian govt as MOD did nowt; its hard to believe the Russians left 10 MILLION mines in that country and our guys suffered so much; total respect, a wonderful film that should win something, and a great experience, thanks everyone
