In This World
Jamal Udin Torabi, Enayatullah Jumaudin
Directed by Michael Winterbottom
Michael Winterbottom, who is turning out to be one of the best and boldest directors working today, switches gears from the punk-rock scene of 24 Hour Party People to a haunting story of immigration. Two Afghan boys — sixteen-year-old Jamal (Jamal Udin Torabi) and his older cousin Enayat (Enayatullah) — leave their Pakistani refugee camp and try to make it to London via Iran, Turkey and Italy. Though the film looks like a documentary, it isn't. Instead, without an ounce of phony Hollywood uplift, Winterbottom's film cuts right to the heart.
