The Colour Of Paradise


Writer/director Majid Majidi's The Colour Of Paradise is a melodramatic tearjerker which concerns the fraught relationship between blind Iranian boy Mohammad (Mohsen Ramezani) and his embittered father Hashem (Hossein Mahjub). Part cinematic celebration of the beauty of the Iranian countryside, part questioning of faith, the understatement of the best Iranian films is missing. Majidi instead favours swelling music, distracting slow-motion and a lachrymose resolution.
