* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Is Amir a misunderstood boy who [[WellDoneSonGuy wants his fatherís affections]]? A coward who always runs from his problems? Or a selfish but still caring person? It seems that everyone sees Amir differently depending on how they view him.

Added DiffLines:

* OneHitWonder: Zekeria Ebrahimi and Ahmad Khan Mahmidzada, the Afghan child actors who played young Amir and young Hassan respectively, had never acted before and have never acted again. In fact, acting in the movie caused major problems after shooting finished, because many questioned sending them back to Kabul, where their families feared attacks because of the homosexual themes in the movie. They were relocated to the United Arab Emirates.

* CompleteMonster: Assef [[spoiler:rapes Amir's servant, Hassan, because he wouldn't give him a kite, and then goes on to become a member of the Taliban, where he takes small children from orphanages to become sex slaves, one of them the orphaned son of Hassan!]]. As a cherry on top, he actually ''admires'' UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler. By that point he's already shown himself to be a nasty villain in many respects.

* UnfortunateImplications: Assef is [[ButNotTooForeign half-German]], has blonde hair and blue eyes and wishes that Hazaras were wiped out of existence. And itís implied that he sees Hitler as a role model if his birthday present for Amir is anything to go by. This was probably the reason why that changed Assefís hair brown and never mentioned anything else aside from still being a bully and hating Hazaras.
