"[T]his simple fable of a righteous man's relationship to his family, his community and most of all his faith has the force of conviction. And the scenes of rural life -- especially an overhead shot of Karim carrying a blue door through a field -- are quite beautiful."New York Times "If you didn't know that Majid Majidi's THE SONG OF SPARROWS was made well before the global economy came crashing down, you might be tempted to see this beguiling film from Iran as timely topical metaphor..."Wall Street Journal [T]he cinematography by Tooraj Mansouri is beautiful....[The director is] particularly adept at eliciting wonderfully moving and funny performances out of children.Los Angeles Times "[A] beautifully austere morality tale....Its dry whimsy, spare landscapes, and sparer sitar score are very simple pleasures, as simple as the film's ultimate message about traditional family values." -- Grade: BA.V. Club 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "THE SONG OF SPARROWS is a sweet and uplifting humanistic fable that celebrates the joys of community and pastoral life over a harried and materialistic urban existence."USA Today "[U]ltimately beguiling, SONG OF SPARROWS morphs from a sly dramedy about running a household into a fable of two ways of life (urban and rural) that can't coexist."Washington Post76.15911
