Kur­dish Movie Re­view: Win­ter­land

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS - H.G. Has­san

"Win­ter­land", writ­ten by Kjell Ola Dahl and Hisham Za­man and di­rected by Hisham Za­man, is a ro­man­tic film tinted with a warm, soft kind of hu­mour that high­lights it's beau­ti­ful scenery and pho­tog­ra­phy. The film's pro­tag­o­nist is a Kur­dish male that goes by the name Re­nas who lives in North­ern Norway- a coun­try fa­mous for it's sta­bil­ity, both eco­nom­i­cally and in terms of laws.

Re­nas, the young Kurd, ap­pears to have ev­ery­thing he could hope for. As the story pro­gresses; how­ever, the au­di­ence is proven wrong as he's shown to long for a cer­tain woman from his past, one that he misses dearly.

"Win­ter­land" is one of the more popular Kur­dish films re­leased in 2007 and users from the site "mubi.com" also seem to en­joy it. User "ClaraSoph" writes, "I liked its simplicity. I don't know, it touched me. The wide snowy coun­try­side and the beau­ti­ful art­less Ara­bic phi­los­o­phy... kind of in­spir­ing!" Other users com­pli­ment the film on it's gor­geous pho­tog­ra­phy and scenery which the di­rec­tor, Hisham Za­man, man­aged to bring out flaw­lessly with the di­rec­tion of the plot.
