children of heaven

A sweet, affecting tale of a brother and sister who scout the streets of urban Iran in search of a pair of battered sneakers while juggling school and home responsibilities. Despite the shoe-crisis and a basic poverty, they remain respectful, strong, and enchanted by life’s simple joys be they soap bubbles or sparkling goldfish. As do we. Naturalistic performances and a touching portrayal of deep family love rarely seen on this continent make it a movie gem. [iran, 1997]
