The Kiterunner is a thrilling movie with amazing actors. Thank goodness they kept the story in Farsi when it was used. Although some of the translations were a little bit off, for the most part, it was good. An actor I especially loved was Elham Ehsas, who played young Assef. He sounded so mean and did a brilliant acting job. Definitely a must see movie--especially if you've read the book.
