bag of rice

کیسه برنج


When a small child and her elderly neighbor go on a search for a bag of rice, their seemingly modest trip turns into a touching journey through the streets of Tehran.

An astonishing and unrivaled piece of Iranian cinematography reminiscent of works of masters such as Abbas Kiarostami, Bag of Rice is a unique and charming masterpiece that reminds us of the essential craft that makes great cinema.
