Critic Reviews for Avaze gonjeshk-ha (The Song of Sparrows)
At times funny, sad, poignant and suspenseful, Sparrows is a showcase for Majidi's masterful storytelling -- and Naji's superb acting.
At times tedious but ultimately beguiling, Song of Sparrows morphs from a sly dramedy about running a household into a fable about two ways of life (urban and rural) that can't coexist.
The images in The Song of Sparrows have a poetic grace that's to be desired in storytelling.
It is somehow congenial to feel that we are watching a tale that could have been told elsewhere.
Audience Reviews for Avaze gonjeshk-ha (The Song of Sparrows)
A film that could only be seen at a number of film festivals and that's why I am thankful there are Film Festivals. This movie is from Iraq and its about a man who works on a ostrich farm until one gets away, then he goes to Tehran where he is mistaken for a motorcycle cabbie. Just an over all good movie about life of one man in Iraq. 5 Stars
An ok movie. Some of the scenes are just great, like trying to find the ostrich, discovering all the things you can transport on a motorbike (answer: Lots!), cleaning a sewer and trying to get a hearing aid. Still, these moments seem to have happened more by accident than design -- short stories stitched together. All this could have led to a nice conclusion, but it seemed to go really nowhere to me.
More proof to the fact that iranian cinema is hopeless, sentimental, shallow & cliche approach to the cliche 'city life corrupts' thing plus some other uninteresting themes that none of them has been explored well, The film's few interesting & good moments are the ones with Karim & the Ostriches & there a few impressive sequences here & there, Also those spoiled kids with their stupid dream were annoying as hell
