The Kite runner, directed by Marc Foster is excellently executed. This film follows the journey of protagonist, Amir. The writer of the book was great at using symbols in the beginning of the film, which showed large significance to the later events of the film. Director Marc Foster did very well portraying these symbols in the 2 hours he had to tell such a great tale. Foster used camera angles such as the birds eye view, with focus to the kite in the sky, to indicate significance of the kite. He also uses the eye level shot, so the audience feels like they are witnessing this scene as it plays out. Overall, The Kite Runner was a very enjoyable film study, and I strongly recommend watching it.

I don't care if it's real or not. Depicting child rape is disgusting and morbid. It should not have to be shown or implied. I don't care about 'raising awareness' or whatever this is trying to do. You can do that without throwing child rape at people. And the young actors that had to portray that. There's a level of what's acceptable. And apparently this is a West End show too. Because seeing it all on a screen wasn't bad enough. Jesus. The book shook me more than anything. I didn't want to read it. I want to see it even less. It's really just unacceptable they made it visual.

Great Story. I think the creative staff did a great job of recreating a book. Very seldom can a movie do a great job of making a book come to life. I think part of the success that this story had is that this is a story of the human heart. I think it has really made me realize that Afghanistan was a beautiful place, that has been torn by war for 3 decades. I pray that soon it is returned to a beautiful, peaceful place. It has made me understand the Afghan's story and the Taliban story. I never understood why or how the Taliban treated their people the way they did, and still don't but think I have a better understanding.
