Critic Reviews for The Color of Paradise
A modest and accessible Iranian film, softer than most but still intriguing.
When more film lovers discover the visual beauty of this film and continue to be haunted by its imagery, Majidi's films will surely receive more screenings in the states
Visually stunning and emotionally wrenching...an uncommonly graceful and deeply moving portrayal of the hopes and desolation of childhood.
It tells with sophisticated simplicity a not so simple story of faith and unconditional love and the sadness that comes to one who falls short in both.
Audience Reviews for The Color of Paradise
Achieves beauty through simplicity.
This was relatively a great relief after having a head exploding experience through 'The Song Of Sparrows'.
Rang-e Khoda (literal translation from Persian: The Color of God), is an Iranian film well written and directed by Majid Majidi. It is warm, innocently honest drama which revolves around a blind boy named Mohammed. His father takes him home from his special school in Tehran for summer vacation. Mohammed's father, who is a widower, wants to marry a local widow but his blind son is an obstacle because he fears the girl's family will see that as a bad omen. The innocent child touches and feels the nature around him, counting the sounds of animals, and imitating them. He displays a unique attitude towards nature, and seems to understand its rhythms and textures as a language. Going back to the village is not the best choice but... Watch this wonderful movie to see what happens next! Solid acting by Hussein Mahjoub, Mohsen Ramezani, Salameh Feyzi and Farahnaz Safari but the full enjoyment was a little bit spoiled by the really bad camera used... I guess they didn't have better!
