There are not many films made on the theme of looking the world through the eyes of a child. But here is one of those rare and classic movies which won hearts all over the world due to its beautiful content and direction. It’s also one of the most famous movies which earned recognition & respect for Irani Cinema in rest of the world.

The story is a beautiful thought portrayed on the celluloid. It’s about a brother and sister who are from a poor family. The brother looses a pair of shoe of her sister when he is busy purchasing in the market for the house. Now they don’t want to tell this to their father as they know he doesn’t have the money to buy her a new pair. So they decide to share one pair of shoes to the school. It becomes possible as the girl is in a morning shift and the boy studies in the evening shift. How they manage their school with only one pair of shoes for many days is a sheer delight to watch.   
And the story progresses further, when the boy decides to fight a race competition in which he can win a new pair of shoes as the second prize. So he says that he will not come first but will be second in the race to win the pair. The climax is just superb and there are no words to describe the emotions shown by all the child actors in the film. There are many more brilliant sequences in the movie worth watching repeatedly.
A film, which will make you feel like living again with a new life-force. It can change the way you look upon those young and innocent souls around you. Show it to all the members in your family and spend a evening together with all the kids. Don’t hesitate watching it as it is foreign language film. You will regret it if you choose to give this a miss. Strongly recommended for everyone young & old living in any corner of the world. 

Directed By Majid Majidi
