Sweet story. Is it a political or generational metaphor, or both?
27 November 2006 | by (Worcester, MA USA) – See all my reviews

One of my favorites by Kiarostami.

A deaf grandfather alone in the house, turns off his hearing aid to get away from noise. The day goes by and he has not turned on his hearing aid, so doesn't hear his granddaughter at the door below. A crowd assembles (the chorus of the title) to join in yelling up to the grandfather.

Sweet story. Is it a political or generational metaphor, or both?

Screenplay: Abbas Kiarostami (based on a story by Mohammad Javad Kahnamoie.) Cinematographer: A.R. Zarindast Sound: Ahmad Asgari, Changiz Sayad. Asst. Dir: Naser Zera'ati. Cast: Yusef Moqaddam, Ali Asgari, Teymur and children from Rasht.

also: Why is it so hard to find foreign short films, no matter how amazing and beautiful.
