The White Balloon (1995) Iranian

Director: Jafar Panahi;
FiC Rating: 4.5/5

  1. Jafar Panahi’s debut cinema with a screenplay written by his master Kiarostami is a beautiful take on a story of a kid’s innocent aspiration and a hurdle to get it.
  2. Panahi with this marvel makes one believe that stories could be driven from any aspects, all that require is the child like excitement to wonder and linger into the happenings around us.
  3. What seems to be as a simple narrative of a kid also has a lot of powerful potrayal of then Iranian society and it’s underlying political struggles.
