hi all, this is my first post. i have just watched Osama the first Afghan movie that was released after the fall of the tlaiban. I loved the movie. It was very simple yet very menaingful, since the director/writer/editor (one person) used non-professional actors who were natives of afghanistan. What left me hanging though is the symbolisms of some parts of the movie.

If anyone of you has watched the film, do you know what any of these mean?

1. The giving of the lock of the husband in the end.
2. Osama's skipping rope scene at the very end of the film
3. The old man takng a bath at the end of the film
4. the boys' lessons on how to.. "take a bath"

thanks in advance to anyone who can help me.
