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.

One of the loveliest films I've ever seen. A film based on shoes, how great this is ? Nevertheless, The kids' performance was top.

I'm suprised the troll hasn't come back seeing how people has thrown so much food around :D

Anyways: This was a really charming movie. Quite moving and certainly great. Yet to see a weak movie from Iran - but then I haven't seen too much.

This was not what I expected. It's got a lot of good stuff going for it but you should know what you're in for. The back of the DVD box pitched this as a light-hearted family film full of hijinx, and it's...not that. It has some pretty grim depictions of a family living in poverty and all of the hardship that comes with that. The adults in the film are flawed, in a realistic way, which is a good thing, but also a hard thing. The film was very well shot and well edited, and like other commenters have stated, the child actors gave generally outstanding performances. I thought the tension was kind of flat until the last act, but the last act was pretty dang good! Tonally, though, this movie was pretty bleak most of the time. Life is hard when you're impoverished and this movie does not shy away from that.
