As with many films, there are good and bad points, and this movie had some majorly good points, but I don't think I'd really give it anything higher at the moment.OSAMA is so relentless in what it depicts. As it should be, as it is the first film made since the fall of the Taliban, but it's as if the director tried to make up for all that lost time in this very short movie. I can say that I applaud Barmak for it's visuals--very colourful in a town of dust and rumble. Also for its visual 'ironies'' as you can call them. Such as when Golbahari's hair has been cut off and she puts it in a pot of soil as if she wanted it to grow, and even more when IV fluid (her mother is a doctor) is dripping down into the soil as to heal the severed braid. The film is very clever in its visual representations and is beautiful to watch.But with all movies like this, the message and story are very depressing. There isn't an easy way to sugarcoat the story without losing its sense of realism, but Barmak really lays it to the audience. It's almost as if he's saying, "look what we have gone through for so long, watch this and pity us!" I know this is not what he tries to convey with his powerful film, but each scene is just one relentless moment after another. And I think that's one major point I did not like about it. Even though it portrays everyday, life back when the Taliban ruled, it seems very heavy-handed.But one huge good point was Golbahari (Arif Herati). What a great actor she is. And to think she got the part by begging Bakmar for money. For no training and being so young, and being oppressed for so long, I would say this is one of the best child performances ever. She is the highlight of the movie. The acting as a whole is very impressive, but you'd probably agree that she just trumps everyone.There isn't much you can do to improve this film, because there isn't much you can add. I think it's one of those films that no matter what you do it will never be "perfect". I think it ends off perfectly, and has great aspects, but it will just never reach the level, no matter how hard someone tries, that other films have reached.7.5/10

Nicola D (es) wrote: good comedy about an alcoholic guy, but I found this a little too egocentric. I didnt appreciate Buscemi's perpetual underlining on himself, especially because he's definitely no hunk boy. The tavern reminded me a little of Boe Syzlak's tavern from "The Simpsons".

Dominic F (br) wrote: 2003 in particular was an odd kind of year where many of the best films are those that few people are familiar with. A case in point is Whale Rider. People trying to make a female empowerment film could probably learn a thing or two from Whale Rider, particularly Keisha Castle-Hughes' character and Academy Award nominated performance.
