On the Kurdish refugee camp on the Iraqi-Turkish border, the boy Satellite is the leader of the kids. He commands them to clear and collect American undetonated minefields in the fields to sell them in the street market and he installs antennae for the villagers. He goes with the local leader to buy a parabolic antenna to learn the news about the eminent American invasion but nobody speaks English and Satellite that knows a couple of words is assigned to translate the Fox News. When the orphans Agrin and her armless brother Hengov and the blind toddler Riga come from Halabcheh to the camp, Satellite falls in an unrequited love for Egrin. But the girl is traumatized by a cruel raid in her home, when her parents were murdered and she was raped. She wants to leave Riga behind and travel with her brother Hengov to another place, but he does not agree with her intention.

Movie Reviews

Boston Globe - 10/10 by Ty Burr Ghobadi shows us a world where a village pond can hold both rare goldfish and unforgivable evil, and where every step is onto booby-trapped terrain.
Charlotte Observer - 10/10 by Lawrence Toppman One of the most heartbreaking, unforgettable dramas in years.
New York Post - 10/10 by V.A. Musetto This isn't a war movie. Rather, it's a powerful, heart-tugging portrait of the innocent victims of conflict.
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/10 by Roger Ebert It is about the actual lives of refugees, who lack the luxury of opinions because they are preoccupied with staying alive in a world that has no place for them.
Christian Science Monitor - 10/10 by David Sterritt Superb acting and authentic details energize this rare Iran/Iraq coproduction.
Washington Post - 10/10 by Michael O'Sullivan It's a soaring achievement, without ever leaving the ground.
The New Republic - 10/10 by Stanley Kauffmann Turtles Can Fly, is masterly: it courses before us with grace, a control that paradoxically bespeaks love and anger.
Uruguay Total - 10/10 by Enrique Buchichio Una película conmovedora, sugestiva y poética, donde gran parte de la convicción proviene de sus increíbles actores no profesionales.
Orlando Weekly - 10/10 by Lindy T. Shepherd ... painful, despair-filled film.
Charlotte Observer - 10/10 by Lawrence Toppman One of the most heartbreaking, unforgettable dramas in years.
The New Yorker - 9/10 by Anthony Lane Turtles Can Fly has little space for mawkishness, and the kids are far too cussed to be cute. It is, in every sense, the more immediate achievement: it hits and hurts the eyes (the rainy days are lousy enough, but the skies of royal blue, above such grief, feel especially insulting), and it also seems to bleed straight out of the headlines.
Salon.com - 9/10 by Andrew O'Hehir Although Turtles Can Fly is a lyrical, often lovely film with touches of humor, it's also a remorseless tragedy that doesn't offer its child protagonists any false redemption.
