A breath of fresh air in storm of run-of-mill Hollywood crap
9 April 2012 | by kemcolian228See all my reviews

The best thing about this movie (and other Iranian movies i have seen) is the simplicity and natural acting of their actors...specially the child actors.

Story is simple. Its about the adventures of an old lady with a 6 year old girl to buy a sack of rice from main market and all the hurdles they face during this task. Execution is perfect. Acting is so natural and realistic that its just heart-warming.

Bottom line: If you are utterly bored by the routine holly or bollywood movies and wants to see something that touches your heart, give this movie a try. Your 80 minutes wont be wasted !!!
