Frequently Bought Together
Winner of the Cannes film festival Jury Prize in 2003, this film, directed by Samira Makhmalbaf (daughter of Mohsen Makhmalbaf, creator of the highly-acclaimed film 'Kandahar'), was the first foreign film to be made in Kabul, Afghanistan after the Taliban were overthrown. Centred around the story of Noqreh, a progressive young woman who dreams of growing up to be the President of the Republic despite her oppressive home life and a strained relationship with her bigoted but loving father, the film portrays the daily struggles of Afghan women in post-Taliban Afghanistan with tenderness and hope against a tragic background of death and despair.

In At Five in the Afternoon, Makhmalbaf's Afghanistan could not be more foreign or more bleak, yet her sympathetic portrayals - especially of men who pray at the sight of a woman's face - ensure there's no judgement. Instead, Nogreh's going against her father to become an educated woman plays out naturally, like teen rebellion.
Nogreh, a young women in post-Taliban Afghanistan battles against harsh living conditions and the intolerance of her father to gain an education and a future for herself. She even dreams of being the first woman president one day. Samira Makhmalbaf's third film is her best: at once neo-realist and allegorical, making the most of the harsh and beautiful landscape to present a 'borderless' vision of the victory of hope over despair.
The main character is interesting in her desire to be a political leader but also her looks are engaging. I enjoyed learning more about the lives of the people in Afghanistan and how bad their plight. The disappointment for me was in the film ending where you look for a happy end but this time there isn't one. The main character made a friend of a man who was not there at the end and there was no change in their fortune at the end. It just disappointed me at that point. I would never play this film again but glad I saw it is best I can say.
