The Patience Stone

Golshifteh Faranhi, Hamid Djavadan, Hassina Burgan, Massi Mrowat

Movie propaganda

Set in Afghanistan, The Patience Stone is a partly allegorical tale of a Muslim wife tending to her comatose soldier husband who has been shot in the neck. As she cares for him, for the first time ever she is able to speak to him without fear of censorship and he becomes, for her, like the mythical Patience Stone to which you tell your troubles and when the stone finally bursts, you are free from your torments. The film is adapted from Atiq Rahimi’s novel of the same name, which won the illustrious Prix Goncourt in 2008.
