Where is the Friend's Home? (Khane-ye doust kodjast?)

Iran 1987

Ratings from other sources

IMDB 8.0/10

An 8 year old boy must return his friend's notebook he took by mistake, lest his friend be punished by expulsion from school.

My ratings 8.0/10

My impressions:

Action speak louder than words. The desire to help a friend in need knows no bounds in this story. The journey, effort and hardship encountered while trying to help is most admirable. The adults might never be able to come close to this level of friendship. That strong will to do what is required. The right thing to do despite the obstacles.

It seemed ordinary at the beginning but the end was worth the wait.
