The White Balloon ★★★★

Little Razieh is just too good for this world :’-)

Kiarostami and Panahi really know how to create an anxiety-inducing situation out of matters of perspective. The world through a child’s eyes is vast in small places, and just as frightening and disheartening as it is wondrous (especially for a little girl). Didn’t even take a note during that snake scene, because it had me ready to punch someone.
