Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Winner of the Camera D or (Best First Feature) at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival, A Time for
Drunken Horses announced Iranian director Bahman Ghobadi (Turtles Can Fly, No One Knows
About Persian Cats) as a major talent. His debut follows the heart-wrenching drama of a Kurdish
family living on the Iran-Iraq border. The only work available in this poverty-stricken locale is to
smuggle goods between the countries, through hills stalked by armed bandits. These dangers rob
Ayoub (Ayoub Ahmadi), Amaneh (Amaneh Ekhtiar-dini), Rojin (Rojin Younessi) and the developmentally
disabled Madi (Madi Ekhtiar-dini) of their parents, and they are forced to fend for
themselves. Ayoub is the eldest boy, and soon starts making the perilous overland journeys himself,
desperate to raise money for Madi s life-saving operation. Surviving the snowy valleys and marauding
thieves does not bring in enough money, and their uncle sets up an arranged marriage for Rojin,
threatening to split up the close-knit siblings. Haunting performances by the non-professional child
actors convey a devastating portrait of Kurdish life on the margins of Iranian society.
