Simple, and lovely. The kids are terrific and contrary to expectations the turns of the story and the resolutions aren't as you'd necessarily expect. Among the best Iranian movies I've seen (and I really do intend to see more). It reminded me of The Bicycle Thieves in more ways than one, and that's probably the highest compliment I can offer.
Wonderful and unpretentious piece of realist cinema.
I wish there were less people in this world who dislike this movie.
