Chidren of Heaven
Posted by The Visitor மேல் மே 26, 2008
Today morning I received a call from my spouse, alerting me that there was a movie Children of Heaven (Bacheha-Ye Aseman) being telecast on Vijay TV at 2.00pm. I don’t usually get such alerts – so I thought that it must be something special and bunked office. It was well worth it – I dont know what genre of films it belongs to, but it was certainly charming and many a time brought a catch to my throat. The children who acted were adorable. I strongly recommend seeing it.
It is an Iranian movie directed by Majid Majidi and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1998; It lost out to the Italian film, Life is Beautiful.
a clip from the film – there are several clips on YouTube.
an interview with the director.
IMDB link. You can read more user comments here. Just as it’s fun reminiscing about old times, its as much nice to read reviews about such movies.
