Children of Heaven

Children of Heaven ★★★★★

In 1997, Iran produced three extraordinary films: Bacheha-Ye Aseman (Children of Heaven), Ayneh (The Mirror) and Ta'm e Guilass (Taste of Cherry). Master Majid Majidi is pretty much known for his overabundant humanism, and whereas several films treat such topics in a very fashioned, unrealistic way, this film offers believable possibilities, overwhelming magic and a finale so inspiring you'll feel your heart exploding.

Thanks, Majidi, for such a needed tribute to neorealism!
