The song of sparrows

Watched this Iranian movie (The song of sparrows) which comes in an English subtitle was a simple yet affective story of a man who works from a countryside ostrich farm near Tehran with a beautiful family of five, when one of the ostrich escaped from the farm thrown him out of job and who drive to Tehran to repair his daughter’s hearing aid get chance to drop a fellow at his destination which followed him to take the bike taxi as a profession and thus how changes his attitude and realization, caress the remaining story.
With the title, the song of sparrows, showcasing the largest bird on land, ostrich, is something unexpected but yet so real how it escape from the farm and the way used to trace the bird was interesting and I know now that ostrich too has fabulous feathers and not to forget the end with a spectacular sight of ostrich dance which twist its neck back to attract mate.

Karim, the head of the family portrait the familiar father character well and couldn’t differentiate by country or language and so was his acting and speaking weren’t like apart from our neighborhood cinema. The movie defines how own things and money take chance to change a person’s attitude from being generous and honest and without going deep in emotion the realization take place beautifully into the mind of a man when he fall down to wake up with the support of others.

The children part in this feature film is the real enthusiastic and fun, regards touched by their passion for fishes and the wish to clean the septic tank to grow fishes comes as a surprise when later found it to be pristine clean. The most scanning scene comes when boys lose their balance and dropped the tub full of fishes on the pavement is a great cause of desperate to see how fishes wiggle to survive and the boys wipe away the fishes into the roadside canal since tear dropping.

At last to display the sparrow regard the caption, the Karim’s kindness towards the bird which caught into his house by helping it to fly away after its attempts through the glass window even he find it hard to open the door with his bandaged limb. The movie also bears some nostalgia and one of it cheers the memory of adjusting TV antenna on terrace and thus shouting from downstairs whether it is clear or not – the father son compo is lovable here.

It is a very pleasant movie to watch along with our families and mom also showed interest watching the movie in-between her cooking gesture and if missed a scene or phase she ask me what happened next. Thorough it was beautiful and I enjoyed the simple gestures even missing subtitles and want to check the other presentations of the director’s Majid Majidi, who has some enchanting titles as reliable. It looks like close to coincident to watch the movie with World Sparrow’s day ahead for Sunday (March 20)!
