A Journey Into Maturity
24 September 2004 | by (Seoul, Republic of Korea) – See all my reviews

The film 'the Girl in the Sneakers' is a very deep look into the role of women in Iranian society as well as into the human heart. In this film the director very intimately looks at life-changing events for one Iranian girl, showing a dramatic shift in her personal values and view of the world in the backdrop of Tehran.

The film finds great power in its' sometimes brutal portrayal of life on the streets, and its' very honest look into the roles of women. The film portrays a very existential view of the world -- which becomes especially powerful as we see an innocent, idealistic girl being manipulated and taken advantage of by those around her. The beginning moments of the film set the plot and pace very well, and show a portion of life that is often neglected in film (and all faculties of art).

In addition to the meaningful story there is cinematography that is powerful in its' simplicity, and an ambient soundtrack which does a good job of accompanying the film. Overall, a very interesting and well-done journey in the most pivotal days of a human life. In the end, we all relate to the main character's coming-of-age struggle for independence in a society that wishes her a life of dependence.
