30 May 2004 | turkam
| Very endearing
"In This World" is yet another exceptional film from Michael Winterbottom, who seems to be one of the best directors from the UK these days. I really liked his film before this "24 Hour Party People" and once again he has done a masterful job of combining elements of documentary into a feature films. From the outset, it is pointed out that lots more 'muhla' went into bombing Afghanistan than providing refugees with any assistance. This was filmed in Pakistan, Iran, Turkey and parts of Western Europe. One of the more touching moments comes when the lead characters meet up with an Iranian (I presume ethnic Kurds) family as they enter Southeast Turkey from Iran. A very touching film. It is certainly more vivid an disturbing than most road movies, whether you are talking about "Stagecoach" or even "Thelma and Louise"- this is gripping stuff indeed, and a good companion to the recent Afghan film "Osama."
