Overview

The Little Soldier: for the children of British soldiers who fell in Afghanistan by Chyngyz Chyngyz Aitmatov

The great Kyrgyz writer tells the story of a five-year-old boy who
sees his father falling in the movie. The naive pride of the little boy
and his longing for the father he has never known are entangled
with the tragedy and absurdity of war.
In spite of the accurate descriptions of explosions and falling
soldiers, Aitmatov describes in his beautiful, poetical language the
mentality and the atmosphere in a small village, in a community of
shepherds. A touching and moving story, short and concise, but full
of insight and depth.
