Why didn't they tell us it was subtitles? Even the trailer doesn't let on that--it's an English narrator telling you about the movie. The promoters of the movie should be spanked for lack of transparency.
1. A great family film, and heart-warming to see a brother and sister love each other so much.
2. Interesting from a cultural and intercultural communication perspective.
1. I actually do not have and cons to this film.
The story line sounds simple and quite boring.. It's most definitely not..
You don't have to be a child like Ali or Zahra to understand the simplicity of love, truth and achieving goals.. Although this movie is set in a very low income area in Iran, it touches on the daily trials and tribulations that everyone around the world, rich or poor, have experienced several times in their lifetime.. Right from wrong, financial priorities, stress from things just not leaning your way and overall happiness..
Ali shows true concern for his family and others.. His mother is ill and Ali chooses to stay with her instead of playing with his friends.. His father becomes timid trying to find work in the city and Ali steps in to help him and ends up finding a job for him.. Of course Zahra needs shoes for school.. Ali accidentally lost the shoes, and makes every effort to find them or replace them.. This is the plot of the movie, but don't think that this movie will bore you because it's about a pair of shoes..
I have to honestly say out of the thousands of movies I've seen in my lifetime, this has to be one of the top ten.. Not for cinematography, special effects, soundtracks or Hollywood movie stars, but for the message, the portrayal, the feeling and the wonderful acting and depiction of feeling and thought with little to no words..
Rent this movie, you will not be disappointed.. When Ali falls down towards the end of the film, I was at the edge of my seat rooting for him with joy while crying with sadness at the same time.. This movie truly touches you.. If you have a heart, you won't just watch this movie, you will FEEL it..

The director could have done with some snappier editing, but I'm glad every movie isn't "Gone in 60 seconds".
Really cool! Show it to the kids and they'll feel better for what they have.
Der Film kommt zudem ganz ohne Sex&Crime aus, was ich an arabischen Filmen wie diesen schon lange schätze.
Eine Empfehlung von Herzen für alle.
Die langwierige Suche nach diesen Laiendarstellern hat sich gelohnt. Kaum vorstellbar,
dass ein anderes Paar mit dieser Überzeugung und Intensität gespielt hätte.
Unglaublich vor allem, wenn ich bedenke, dass das Mädchen förmlich zum mitspielen
getragen werden musste.
Dieser Film berührt und ist aus meiner Sicht besonders sehenswert.
Ich fand ihn total süß und kann ihn einfach nur weiterempfehlen.
Schön ist es vor allem, wenn man ihn in Originalsprache mit Untertitel sieht, denn dann kommt das Gefühl erst richtig rüber - Übersetzt auch schön, aber eben nicht das Selbe!
Auf jeden Fall etwas für Menschen, die auf außergewöhnliche Filme stehen! Nix für Leute, die sich nur Starbesetzungsfilme anschauen und denken, darüber hinaus gibt es nix!
