    Used to be in the 1001 Movies list. At least Paranormal Activity is still in that list.... 3 years 5 months ago

    An Afghan refugee in Canada goes back to Afghanistan to find her sister who wrote to her saying that she would commit suicide. Very interesting. Too bad the narration is in English: it breaks part of the disorientation that could have made this film more fascinating. 1 year 7 months ago
