Critic Reviews for The White Balloon (Badkonake sefid)
By putting itself in sync with the rhythms of everyday life, it offers a reminder that the simplest forms of filmmaking can be the most satisfying.
Those with the patience to sit through all eighty-five minutes will uncover a sublime, unconventionally engrossing story.
There are LONG stretches of... well, real time.
Panahi has much the same kind of talent, a concern to make his film a kind of home for its characters, but he has not yet found [Kiarostami's] secret, how to find and hold the still point of the turning world.
We need to fall in love with Razieh to see the film properly, and we do.
Raziah takes everything at face value, forcing us to look again at people and situations we would immediately judge as good or bad -- reason enough to see this film.
Audience Reviews for The White Balloon (Badkonake sefid)
It was brilliant, specially the simplicity of the movie, It is about a girl who sets out to buy a goldfish, but things happen on the way. This is a very slow paced movie. The plot is thin in terms and it frustrated me in the beginning with distractive style. However it is quite funny on the surface.
