I recently watched this particularly touching and painful film, and I feel I must recommend it to everyone (not children, though). Turtles Can Fly is a Kurdish film by director/writer Bahman Ghobadi, and is proof that some of the best movies are not made by Hollywood. The modern world is so concerned about the “horrible crimes” like name-calling and “relational aggression” that our children have to endure. Watch this film and you will see the true meaning of resilience. Most of the actors in this film are children, some of them severely handicapped. Their performance is amazing. See it. You won’t be disappointed.
