Bashu, the Little Stranger (Bashu, gharibeye koochak) Reviews

Page 1 of 1

Super Reviewer

July 25, 2009
Bashu dealt with a very complex issue which was the cultural differences in Iran. It was masterfully done by one of the best directors of Iran, Bahram Beizai. Bashu was a young boy from South part of Iran who happened to end up in Northern part of Iran and experienced the cultural differences. In comparing these two parts of Iran, Beizai masterfully brought out the differences between the people, the climate, the costume and the language.

Aside from the cinematography, director Bahram Beizai used supernatural touches to move the audience. Sussan Taslimi was tough and beautiful; the children acting in the film were amazing, the elders of the village were real, hateful, and could be human too.

Very little dialogue moved the story along and the story was shot with trust and slowness. There was mystery of course and not all of it was explained.
This was a very moving film, most Persian movies are and I recommend to anyone.

It's a great film about peace, children and equality among different races, and a must-see movie against war and racism...
