'Turtles Can Fly', the opening film of the forthcoming 4th Asian film festival in Mumbai, is a must watch movie for all those who appreciate good quality cinema.

Directed by Iranian filmmaker Bahman Ghobadi, 'Turtles Can Fly' is an ingeniously crafted and extraordinarily moving film set in a refugee camp on the Iraq border just before the American invasion of Iraq two years back.




The movie was shown in Delhi at 7th Osian Cinefan Film Festival where it got a huge applause at the end of screening.

The movie doesn't go into US bashing. It rather documents the lives of children in a refugee camp when the war is imminent.

The protagonists of the movie are children. There is a boy named Satellite who does everything from arranging a dish antenna for the people in the camp (to see the news of the coming war) to supervising other children in dismantling of land mines.

One such boy is Henkov, an armless boy who fends for his sister Agrin and her son. The brother sister duo have come from Hallabjah, where many Kurds were persecuted under the Saddam Hussain regime. Henkov has an unusual gift - that of making predictions.

As Satellite and Henkov befriend each other, the armless boy makes predictions that come true one after another. Satellite uses these predictions to help people and children in the camp.

'Turtles Can Fly' has won many awards at film festivals across the world.

The movie will inaugurate the 4th Asian film festival in Mumbai on October 20.

The weeklong film fest will feature 62 films from 22 Asian countries. Noted Indian filmmakers like Amol Palekar , Adoor Gopalakrishnan and Madhur Bhandarkar will be felicitated at the fest.
