Iranian films

Tom Ricks lists some Iranian films that he has watched and is watching in honor of the protestors.  I saw Children of Heaven last week and loved it.  It’s a very poignant movie about two poor children from south Tehran who have to share a pair of shoes.  The Iranian professor that discussed the film with us said that the censorship constraints on the films force Iranian films to be very clever.
