ANGELIKA’S NOTE

After a boy loses his sister's pair of shoes, he goes on a series of adventures in order to find them. When he can't, he tries a new way to "win" a new pair. From director/writer Majid Majidi (CHILDREN OF HEAVEN), this documentary-like film was shot on location in some of Tehran's poorest areas. Chicago Sun-Times raves, "CHILDREN OF HEAVEN is very nearly a perfect movie for children, and of course that means adults will like it, too."
