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.

This film feature characters that are simple becoming more dynamic through the course of the film. These characters are wonderfully portrayed by the actors making this film a joy to watch.

It's simple story that convey many emotions and in very artistic and heartfelt story that is easy to enjoy. Not much else to say, except go see it if you have not already.
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.
