The Song of Sparrows (Avaze gonjeshk-ha)

Iran 2008

Details imdb

Seen 4 June 2012

In times of adversity

IMDB 7.7/10
Rotten Tomatoes Audience 83% liked it
Malaysian audience might like to know that there is a mention of Malaysian goods in one scene, at least that is what the subtitles displayed. The main character is in almost every scene with a running gamut of emotions. At the same time, the family and children play a crucial supporting role in depicting his struggles and triumphs. I'll give this a 7.0/10

My impressions:

The unexpected happened
What was routine turned haywire
And he has to find another job
Another source of income
To support the family

The unexpected happened again
He found the job
Not that he was looking for it
We could say, it came after him

He went his merry way
Accumulating riches
Sometimes forgetting there are rights and wrongs
Fortunately remembering
The mistakes and making amends

The unexpected seems always to be his fate and
This time he has to depend on the family
And they rise to the occasion

Not smooth sailing all the way
Tears are shed, smiles appear
The human spirit and will
Continues to face another day
