Devoid of cynicism of post-modern dramas, this heart-warming film tells the story of nine year old Ali, who loses his sister Zahraâs newly repaired shoes. Frightened to tell their parents the truth, they devise a plan to share one pair of shoes between them. Zahra wears them to school early morning, and then runs to meet Ali who wears them to his later classes. A very simple premise, its just the basis for what can be called as one of the most deceptively powerful films of recent times. Nominated for Oscars for Best Foreign Language Film cemented Iranian maestro Majid Majidiâs place in world cinema.
