''Osama'' (Persian: أسامة) is a 2003 film made in Afghanistan by Siddiq Barmak. It is about a young girl in Afghanistan under the Taliban who disguises herself as a boy, Osama, in order to support her family. It was the first film to be shot entirely in Afghanistan since 1996, when the Taliban regime banned the creation of all films. The film was an international co-production between companies in Afghanistan, the Netherlands, Japan, Ireland and Iran.

To put it in troper vernacular, ''Osama'' is a real TearJerker that shows the effect the taliban rule had on women, and how the UpToEleven DoubleStandard often created impossible situations for them. Circumstances have left "Osama's" family without any male relatives to support them. When the Taliban close the hospital where they work, and enforce draconic restriction against women working or moving about freely, their choices are literally to endanger their daughter and break the law, or starve.

* BigBrotherMentor: Espandi gives Osama shit about being effeminate, but uses his popularity with the other boys to support her secret identity, teaches her masculine mannerisms, gives her the authoritative nickname, and [[spoiler:cries for her at the end]].

Not to be confused with OsamaBinLaden. Although the use of his name is probably not an accident, the film makes no other reference to him.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The film was meant to have a more [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism idealistic ending,]] but the director [[ArtistDisillusionment grew disillusioned with this idea,]] and the film took a ''hard'' turn to the other side of the scale.
