Summary
  • "After their father dies, a family of five is forced to survive on their own in a Kurdish village on the border of Iran and Iraq. Matters are made worse when twelve-year-old Ayoub, the new head of the family, is told that his handicapped brother Madi needs an immediate operation in order to remain alive. The family must go to any length to survive in the harshest of conditions, where even the horses are fed liquor to get them to work."--IMDb website
  • "Winner of the Caméra D'or (Best First Feature) at the Cannes Film Festival, 'A Time for Drunken Horses' announced Iranian director Bahman Ghobadi ('Turtles Can Fly', 'No One Knows About Persian Cats') as a major talent. His debut follows the heart-wrenching drama of a Kurdish family living on the Iran-Iraq border. The only work available in this poverty-stricken locale is to smuggle goods between the countries, through hills stalked by armed bandits. These dangers rob Ayoub (Ayoub Ahmadi), Amaneh (Amaneh Ekhtiar-dini), Rojin (Rojin Younessi) and the developmentally disabled Madi (Madi Ekhtiar-dini) of their parents, and they are forced to fend for themselves. Ayoub is the eldest boy, and soon starts making the perilous overland journeys himself, desperate to raise money for Madi's life-saving operation. Surviving the snowy valleys and marauding thieves does not bring in enough money, and their uncle sets up an arranged marriage for Rojin, threatening to split up the close-knit siblings. Haunting performances by non-professional child actors convey a devastating portrait of Kurdish life on the margins of Iranian society."--taken from container label
