Baran" is a simple, human, beautiful, touching, wonderful story. Exposing the situation of the Afghans refugees in Iran, after the Sovjet invasion, their civil war and the Taliban regime, this film also gives a lesson of humanity, sympathy and generosity. The actors and actresses have very realistic performances, showing an excellent direction and the character Baran does not speak any word along the story, using only her facial expression to disclose her inner feelings. And the sacrifice of Lateef to please the family of "Baran" shows a pure and platonic love.
BARAN is another excellent film that qualifies as one more of the finest Iranian dramas. Off course from Majid Majidi. Who else?
