Of human values

THE SONG OF SPARROWS Majid Majidi Shemaroo World Cinema/ UTV World Movies, Rs 349

The film is the story of Karim, who works at an ostrich farm outside Tehran. His life with his small family goes on peacefully till one day one of the ostriches runs away from the farm. Karim gets fired from his job for this, even as he has to go to the city to get his daughter’s hearing aid repaired.

The story takes a interesting turn when all of a sudden he is mistaken for a motorcycle taxi driver, initiating him to a new profession and also new, selfish viewpoints. Will he ever get back his values, is what forms the finale in this film. The film won Majidi the best director award at 2009 Berlin Film Festival and was nominated for the Best Foreign Film Oscar too.
