In a divided country on the verge of war, two childhood friends, Amir and Hassan, are about to be torn apart forever. It's a glorious afternoon in Kabul and the skies are bursting with the exhilarating joy of a kite-fighting tournament. But in the aftermath of the day's victory, one boy's fearful act of betrayal will mark their lives forever and set in motion an epic quest for redemption. Now, after twenty years of living in America, Amir returns to a perilous Afghanistan under the Taliban's iron-fisted rule to face the secrets that still haunt him and take one last daring chance to set things right

Drachenläufer by Khaled Hosseini( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Schon der Roman des afghanisch-amerikanischen Schriftstellers Khaled Hosseini war ein riesiger Erfolg. Selten sieht man Literaturverfilmungen, die sich so eng an die literarische Vorlage halten, dabei so gut funktionieren, und auch selbständig, ohne dass man einen Vergleich zum Buch vornimmt, eine bemerkenswerte Eigendynamik entwickeln. Es ist das Schicksal eines durch Besetzung und Krieg zerrissenen, dabei aber durch die Gräuel als Nation geeinten Volkes (in Afghanistan lebte schon immer eine Vielzahl von Volksstämmen). Die Produktion bringt einem aber nicht nur die Geschichte Afghanistans näher, sie schafft es ebenfalls, tiefe Einblicke in das Leben von Menschen zu ermöglichen, die wahrscheinlich niemals mehr in ihre Heimat zurückkehren werden und dennoch ihre Heimat stets im Herzen tragen, egal wohin sie das Leben trägt. Die Metapher vom Drachen, der nur durch eine dünne Leine mit der Heimaterde verbunden ist, geht in diesem Zusammenhang vollkommen auf und gibt der Handlung einen wunderschönen, poetischen Rahmen
