Children Of Heaven

- Majid Majidi

Genre - Comedy/Drama

The beauty of this movie lies in its simplicity. With a story involving a pair of shoes and a family on the brink of poverty, its message is one of hope and love. Often, a film containing such a theme would be cliched and overly-melodramatic. However, in Majid Majidi's hands, it is both bittersweet and poignant. Ultimately, this is the kind of celluloid magic that will stand the test of time. If enough people see this, it might even have the power to cure apathy and end wars. Instant classic.
