Is a remarkable movie this one, I must congratulate his director, the writer of the book and script for their knowledge to transfer to the audience all the feelings immerse in this film, the horror and despair of a war, the suffering, the nightmares, the uncertainty and struggle of a life without future in a devastated land. Of course part of the goal achieve belongs to the actors who made a very good job, but we cannot forget that images were the principal objectives to make the connection with the audience, and to make us feel what Atiq Rahimi wanted, obviously extracted from his experienced when he was a child. "Terre et Cendres" (Soil and ashes) is a must see for those who look for special movies, I mean those movies plenty of meanings, clues,and messages, those films that leave you a message, and make you think. My vote 10/10
