Saturday Night Cinema

The Children of Heaven
Date: 1997
Director: Majid Majidi
Starring: Amir Farrokh Hashemian, Bahare Seddiqi, Mohammad Amir Naji

The first time I watched this film I was so touched by the story. I love the selflessness and solidarity the brother and sister share. The fathers attempt to get ahead just little bit for his family. I was reminded how truly blessed my family is. We have so much. It has a happy ending which is always nice when the story involves children.

The film is Iranian and has subtitles.
6 out of 7 thimbles
