I am grateful for my shoes.

This last weekend, I watched an endearing Iranian film called "Children of Heaven." It is excellent and focuses on the themes of sacrifice and love. If you enjoy foreign films, I would highly recommend this.

Hmmm...we seem to gravitate towards the same movies. Both movies you mentioned this week are some of my foreign film favorites. I love Rabbit Proof Fence as well as Children of Heaven. The latter makes me grateful for the simple things in life. Really, we could all be happy with a lot less. What else are your favorites? Please email me at stephmodo@gmail.com. Thanks!

This is one of my favorite movies! Another one I love is also Iranian and I think it is by the same director. It is called "The Color of Paradise" But you better be prepared with a box of tissues if you are going to watch it.

I love this movie, too! Such a sweet story. And when I see that little girl, I imagine my daughter looking something like that when she grows older. That same director has some other good movies too, but the titles escape me right now.

Oh, yes, The Color of Paradise. (I just scrolled down to read the last comment).
