However, her sister wasn’t so lucky; she lost her legs to a land mine while young, and when Nafas and her family left the country, her sister was accidentally left behind. Nafas receives a letter from her sister announcing that she’s decided to commit suicide during the final eclipse before the dawn of the 21st century; desperate to spare her sister’s life, Nafas makes haste to Afghanistan, where she joins a caravan of refugees who, for a variety of reasons, are returning to the war-torn nation. As Nafas searches for her sister, she soon gets a clear and disturbing portrait of the toll the Taliban regime has taken upon its people.
Plot: After an Afghanistan-born woman who lives in Canada receives a letter from her suicidal sister, she takes a perilous journey through Afghanistan to try to find her.

Like many films from Muslim countries, “Kandahar” is vitally concerned with female emancipation
The film’s great success with audiences was in part due to the timing of its release, at a moment when Afghanistan had been catapulted into the headlines by the activities of the Taliban and the attacks of September 11, 2001

But the motion picture, directed by one of Iran’s most prominent film artists, is much more than a story pulled out from the headlines It stars Nelofer Pazira, a female journalist, based in Canada, playing Nafas, who is trying to get into Afghanistan to reach her sister who lives in Kandahar Nafas’s sister is threatening suicide because of the intolerable oppression of women by the Taliban

In the course of her long and dangerous journey, Nafas encounters a mixed array of Afghan people, many of them refugees An old man agrees to take her into the country disguised as his fourth wife Later she acquires a young boy, Khak (Sadou Teymouri), as her guide after he has been expelled from a religious school On the way she meets Tabib Sahid, an African-American who had come to fight the Soviets but who is now practicing medicine

“Kandahar” mixes documentary authenticity with extraordinary moments of visual strangeness ad beauty The Burka is an ever-present symbol of women’s subjugation, yet underneath women wear varnished nails and lipstick, and their brightly-colored robes affirm their individuality The film placed the suffering of the Afghan people, particularly the women, on an international stage

Visually Stunning Look at War-Torn Afghanis’ Lives
“Kandahar (Safar e Ghandehar)” is the “Apocalypse Now” of the Afghan Wars– an artist’s vision that is strikingly visual, combined with enough facts to confuse us between reality and fiction, though “Kandahar” strays even more into pseudo-documentary territory into the literal Heart of Darkness.

Far less didactic than another recent Iranian film that grimly looked at women’s lives under fanatic Islam, “The Circle,” “Kandahar” was inspired by a Canadian-Afghani journalist’s real quest and somewhat improvised around the people she and the director met on the Afghan-Iranian border while shooting the film, and utilized as amateur actors (including one now identified as a Khomeini-directed assassin).

The images are simply stunning and unforgettable (such that the noisy popcorn eaters stopped crunching bags mid-handful)– prosthetic limbs parachuted into desert Red Cross stations chased by amputees on crutches, posed family portraits with the plural wives covered in burkhas, a mullah martinet leading a crowded class of a madrassas in rote memorization of both the Koran and the use of weapons, and women covered in multi-colored burkhas sweeping over the desert to a frightening check-point.

But all are shown as complex, surprising characters — the amputees are victims of land mines set up by many different sources over the decades or maybe, in a region filled with crafty con men and survival thieves, are victims of rough justice; the mullah is feeding the starving boys; and the husband defends the use of the burkha as a traditional point of honor.

Of course even little touches mean more now — we understand the look of fearful unease as one man mutters that he can’t go to Kandahar because he’s been in the prison there. It’s not just the women who lead lives of quiet desperation in war-torn Afghanistan.

There’s no conventional ending, only our imaginations, but then who knows wither Afghanistan?
