It seems a little warped to say you "enjoyed" this sad tale, but I did. Perhaps appreciated, is a more suitable adjective. Though the focus is one womans' journey, it also provides a glimpse into what daily life can hold for those who call the wasteland that is Afghanistan, home. It's difficult to imagine that you could find anything you would describe as "beautiful" in this country, considering recent events, however - some of the footage captured in "Kandahar" is visually stunning, though equally disturbing. The only complaint I had with "Kandahar, " was the ending... I am curious to know more about the fate of the journalist? Overall - I highly recommend this movie. Keep in mind, the things we (as Canadians) choose to complain about in our daily lives. Upon leaving the theatre - you may feel just a little embarassed.
