The film has a very unconventional narrative style as there's no real beginning, middle or end. The film feels like one flowing scene that doesn't end nor begin for that matter. I can mostly relate this film to David Gordon Green's "George Washington" 2000) as it meanders through the film with no real plot, or climax.
"Wolf and Sheep" was the very first film I saw at the 52nd Chicago International Film Festival this year and I must say it was a great way to start the festival. The film is about life in this little isolated village in the mountains of Afghanistan, and is directed by first time director Shahrbanoo Sadat.
The film mostly focuses its time on the children who live in this little village. Much like any other children, the girls hang out in their group and play games and gossip, while the boys have their group where they talk crudely to one another, and play dangerous games. Now all of the actors in the film were untrained and not really actors for that matter, and that ultimately brought a feeling of realism to the film knowing that they are just people who are literally playing themselves.
