While I enjoyed the movie, I feel some important parts were left out. The beginning of the movie really moved quite quickly. I feel Hassan and Amir's relationship was not developed properly. One thing I was grateful for is that they didn't show the rape of Hassan - it was more implied, still heartbreaking though.

His weak mindedness, allows him to be peer pressured into drinking large quantities of alcohol that allow his dark side to prevail through. The people of Bundanyabba are characterized in a way that does not give them much integrity. “You could sleep with their wives, despoil their daughters, sponge on them, defraud them, do almost anything … But refuse to drink with them and you immediately became a mortal enemy.” This is saying that you could do anything in the world these people and it wouldn’t even compare to rejecting a beer.
