Children of Heaven (1997). Damn you Majid Majid for making me cry over this beautiful simplistic story! A child named Ali loses his sisters shoes at the grocery store and in order to avoid getting in trouble he decides to share his pair with his sister. A child’s innocence really shines through in this Iranian classic.
I honestly would recommend this film for kids as a good segment into foreign film and discover new culture. Ali’s parents are barely surviving trying to make ends meet and then Ali losing his sisters shoes is the icing on top. You get to see this family unit and what’s powerful is you aren’t allowed to judge.
Along the way a moment presents itself for Ali to win a pair of shoes if he competes in a marathon. What Ali puts himself through in order to secure his sisters shoes breaks your heart and wishes you could be there to tell him that everything is going to be alright.
What I loved about this film is the perfect example that children should be kids. Having all these responsibilities that aren’t necessary only stresses the children out and make them feel like they are failures and good for nothing. I understand the fear that Ali has about losing the shoe but it’s not the end of the world.
It teaches a valuable lesson that we should check up on our children and make sure that everything is alright and that the world isn’t going to collapse on them. This film is extremely simplistic and if you are waiting for undertones and nuance then you might be disappointed. I’m not lying this film is pretty much simple to the core in terms of plot and character development! (5/5 Stars)

Nada es tan difícil como lograr las expresiones de un rostro, pero a su vez es muy fácil captar la esencia de una persona. La frutilla del postre termina siendo cuando la dueña del cuadro te dice que le encanta❤️
Fue un regalo de cumpleaños y me pareció la mejor demostración de amor👏🏻
