Review of Osama

Overall Rating
part of the april and the extraordinary world 2017 challenge 1. afghanistan osama is a film about personal drama, social stigmas and discrimination, a collection of tragedies and tearjerking moments that conform the life of a poor pre-teen girl in afghanistan. we have been told this or similar stories in several formats, but what makes this one special is the lasting feel it creates. there is not sadness, there is not pity or horror. what there's left when the screen fades to black and the credits roll is pure rage. and damn, if it works. very few films have left me as infuriated as this one, after a journey of disgrace after disgrace, with several scenes of pure tension and feeling of danger, and moments that turned my stomach in disgust. marina golbahari is amazing as the main character and one of the reasons why this increasingly immersive experience ends up working as well as it does. i personally find her portrayal brilliant because to a point it defies expectations and at the same time it all makes sense. various times i found myself wanting her to fight back, to make rational decisions, to be confident at least. but it never happens. and it never happens because osama is not a heroine, and she doesn't know how to solve things. she is weak, coward and completely helpless. and that is what makes her human, and what makes this journey so frustrating, and at the same time, so powerful and rewarding.
