The Kite Runner
The Kite Runner is a story of friendship, loyalty, change, tradition and danger. The life of a well to do boy in Afghanistan is chronicled from the late 70's to the year 2000. In Afghanistan, his father has servants, the son of one is his dear friend. There is a betrayal, guilt and because of political unrest, flight to the US. The final chapter of this film took a surprising turn. It is suspenseful, dramatic and heartwarming. A lovely film for me.
