Veteran Iranian director Majid Majidi’s gorgeously shot and directed drama focuses on a gang of child thieves.who are enlisted by crime boss Heshem to retrieve a treasure buried in the water pipes beneath the ‘Sun School’.
‘“Sun Children” opens with a series of striking shots. A montage rifles through images of swanky car hoods as a band of pint-size carjackers try to find their pick in a garage; a boy runs through Tehran, the streets rippling around him like water; kids frolic in a circular pool that, shot from above, sparkles like a blue sun. Majid Majidi’s latest feature doesn’t lack in style or charm, using a child’s perspective—a staple in Iranian cinema—to locate beauty and hope in a cynical world.’—Devika Girish, The New York Times
