“THE SONG OF SPARROWS” PRESS PREVIEW.
Mother Earth is not evenly divided.
There are fertile countries and there are barren lands.
There are high places where the peacocks strut
and slums where the lowly sparrows flutter around.
In life, there will always be a caste distinction and a discrimination of certain creeds and breeds.
It all depends on whether you are born at the right place, at the right time.
Fate never dealt with a fair hand.
The only way anyone can do to make the world a better place is to accept things as they are,
to work harder and to spread a little sunshine.
HAPPINESS is an aesthetic taste of the peace, love and joy in the world
expressed through the actions of another.
Joy is the very essence of life circulating
and pouring through the body
and filling your heart with the world.
Poetic dramatization of life?
“When all comes to all,
the most precious element in life is wonder.
Love is a great emotion,
and power is power.
But both love and power are based on wonder.”
This is what Iranian director Majid Majidi, who also wrote this exquisite film with Mehran Kashani, is attempting to convey.
He highlights how the most important things in life, are the simple things we may sometimes neglect.
“THE SONG OF SPARROWS” is a touching parable about family and commitment, hardship and eventual redemption told in stark reality, with a profound wisdom.
Film director Majid Majidi invites us on his journey of humanity, the ostrich and God.
