The Breadwinner is an animated film of rare beauty, which tells how courage, strength, perseverance and determination are essential part of a woman's life at any age.

It is a film made with traditional technique and tells a powerful story and adult it conveys painful and current concepts on the situation in Afghanistan under Taliban control, putting the spotlight on women's issues, and those who do not bend to a material tyranny, intellectual, moral , which deprives the individual of the primary rights.

Ma “The Breadwinner” is not only a reflection of a painful reality, the work communicates universal concepts of freedom and courage, and it is also a cry of hope, a reminder to never give up, as our protagonist Parvana.

Siamo a Kabul nel 2001, in Afghanistan, durante il dominio dei talebani, la città è presidiata e alle donne non è consentito uscire di casa se non accompagnate da un uomo. La protagonista è una ragazza undicenne di nome Parvana: suo padre è un ex professore di storia che, dopo il bombardamento della sua scuola, lavora al mercato locale leggendo lettere a coloro che non sanno leggere. Un giorno viene arrestato con l’accusa di avere un’educazione straniera e così la famiglia (una moglie e tre figlie) rimane senza sostegno economico. A qualche giorno dall’arresto, spinta dalla necessità di provvedere alla propria famiglia, Parvana si taglia i capelli e comincia a indossare gli abiti del fratello defunto Sulayman per fingersi un ragazzo in modo da poter lavorare: la parola che dà il titolo al film, “breadwinner”, It means precisely “man or woman who procures the bread for the family”.

Co-written the novel by the Canadian author Deborah Ellis and published in Italy under the title 'The Breadwinner', the book comes from interviews conducted by Ellis in a Pakistani refugee camp to some Afghan refugees.

This is the first book of the so-called “Parvana of trilogy”, dal nome della protagonista. L’adattamento cinematografico è stato scritto dalla stessa Deborah Ellis in collaborazione con la sceneggiatrice e scrittrice canadese Anita Doron. Il film restituisce, tramite immagini vivide, ciò che ha rappresentato la brutale invasione talebana per il popolo afghano, in una messa in scena molto accurata e realizzata con dovizia di dettagli ma, è soprattutto una esortazione per le donne che subiscono violenze e deprivazioni a combattere contro la brutalità degli uomini e le svariate forme nelle quali si manifesta.
Fortemente voluto da Angelina Jolie, che l’ha prodotto assieme ai creatori di “The Secret of Kells” e “Song of Sea”, lo studio d’animazione irlandese Cartoon Saloon,

The Breadwinner It is a film that stands out sharply from the themes of the two previous works. At tales of Irish folklore, replacing in this case a narrative that denounces the condition of women in Afghanistan, the difficulties of growing up under such a system and the daily struggles that a family like many must make in order to survive and can not keep still alive the viewer's attention that can not help but be troubled by the violence of some images and the general situation of oppression in which they move our protagonists.

The film has won numerous awards around the world and was probationer at the Oscars in 2018 for best animated feature film.
