In this poetic feature from one of Iran's greatest directors, a 10-year-old blind boy travels to the market each day, where he works as a musical instrument tuner. The boy's gift for sound extends well beyond this duty, as he hears the music of life all around him. "Makhmalbaf crafts the boy's world as a flip-book of gorgeous, lyrical images...Makhmalbaf sees audiovisual magic as an alloy, which stretches the bounds of the naturalism he is using in the name of a purely sensory experience" (Wesley Morris, San Francisco Examiner). In Farsi with English subtitles.
