Childhood years need to be a period of our time complete with happiness. During that time we’re “little people” and also soak up any outside experience with an extraordinary intensity. We’re safeguarded by our family and friends which “deceive” us all as long as possible in order to protect the well known youngster’s purity. However, there are numerous young children that are too early grabbed out of infancy and confronted with the duty before they are fully aware the actual meaning of the phrase. This specific movie is devoted to those children.
“Children for Paradise” is an Iranian home drama. Additionally it is the initial film within the history of Iran, which won a exclusive Oscar nomination.
Zahra along with 9-year Ali are brother and sister in a very poor family. Living along with their parents along with newborn baby in a cramped room in Iranian capital of Tehran. They eat, rest as well as perform their own homework on the floor. Troubles appear when when Ali loses Zahrine’s white shoes which he took for repair service. He said what happened having tears in the big brownish eyes as he knew these were the sole boots she had. The largest concern is that she didn’t know just how she’ll to go to the school next day, but the girl didn’t tell her mom and dad simply because the girl knew that they can not pay for new ones. Ali tries to solve the problem – Zahra can wear his sneakers in the morning to the school and then come running home to be able to give them to Ali, who’ll after that run to his afternoon classes. So this worn-out bright sneakers are main element in the film, and more importantly, they grow to be component of their character.
Shimon Haber feels this motion picture has large audience because it is acceptable both for adults and children. Have a chance to see the actual un-selfish and unspoiled love involving brother and sister, respect, unity and balance within a household which lives in absolute poverty.
This warm way of life story tends to make Shimon Haber think that somewhere there exists indeed people like Ali and Zahra, a youngsters familiar with the severity of reality, who do not live a carefree childhood years. The unfortunate point is that all of this realism slides away from our view and that we continue to flip through the pages of magazines, change channels on television as attempting to express they’re not our own “concern”.
