"Mar.13 For a pair of shoes, two Afghan children go to great lengths and learn much more about life in a few months than in a whole year or more. Funny, heart-tugging and an easy-pleaser, the movie is also quite a cultural crash course. If you ever needed reminding of how life is worth the everyday challenge, then watch the movie. Here are very good actors especially the children. There’s no doubt right now how good these Middle Eastern young thespians are. They make it look easy. "
