The Kite Runner

The Kite Runner

Recently, I’m getting interested to know the culture of Afghanistan. in this way, at first, I’ve watched the film about this country. one of them is the Kite Runner.

The Kite Runner is a novel by Khaled Hosseini. he is an Afghan-American writer which until now write several novels. 

  • The Kite Runner
  • And the Mountains Echoed
  • A Thousand Splendid Suns
  • Sea Prayer

so what about the film?

the Kite Runner has made in 2007. the genre of the film is drama-romance. the story of the film is about a kid that likes to write a story. he has the best friend that during the film has shown the relationship between them. 

Amir is the main character of the film which immigrates to America because in Afghanistan is war. he immigrated first to Pakistan then America. you can see the passionate Scenes in this film.

I hope to enjoy that.
