The first feature film to emerge from Iraq after the American-led take-down of Saddam Hussein, Bhaman Ghobadi's TURTLES CAN FLY is a profoundly moving reminder that war spares nobody not even a child in its horrid wake. Between the borders of Iran and Turkey, the residents of an Iraqi Kurdistan village wait anxiously for the violent arrival of the United States military. Satellite (Soran Ebrahim) is an ambitious adolescent who organizes the clearing of minefields and helps to install equipment that brings news from the outside world to his sheltered community. Meanwhile, three orphans are wandering aimlessly. Agrin (Avaz Latif) is intent on ditching the helpless three-year-old that she and her armless brother Henkov (Hirsh Feyssal) have been caring for. Henkov has the gift of premonition, yet unfortunately all of his visions point towards a tragic end. As the planes arrive and Saddam is removed from power once and for all, these innocent children must still confront the bleak reality that awaits them.

Charlotte Observer - 10.0/10 by Lawrence Toppman One of the most heartbreaking, unforgettable dramas in years.
Austin Chronicle - 7.8/10 by Marjorie Baumgarten An emotional triumph.
Salon.com - 9.0/10 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.
Miami Herald - 8.8/10 by Rene Rodriguez By the end, Turtles Can Fly becomes a lyrical and heartbreaking reminder of the human toll of war.
San Francisco Chronicle - 7.5/10 by Ruthe Stein Sad yet offering glimpses of hope.
TV Guide - 8.0/10 by Ken Fox Ghobadi has little use for sentimentality, and never flinches from the fate of these children.
Variety - 9.0/10 by Robert Koehler Ghobadi in this pic displays a complete command of his art as he shifts between -- and even blends -- wrenching tragedy and amusing comedy.
Village Voice - 8.0/10 by Jessica Winter Amid the muddy scrubbery of the camp and its hinterland surroundings, Ghobadi catches some striking compositions.
