Winner of the Bronze Leopard at the Locarno Film Festival, the Prize of the International Critics, and the Prize of the International Ecumenical Jury. Part one of an unforgettable trilogy (with Life and Nothing MoreÃ– and Through the Olive Trees) set in northern Iran. This lyrical tale finds its sourceÃ³both in title and atmosphereÃ³in a poem by the poet/philosopher Sohrab Sepehri, where a traveler searching for his friendÃs home finds himself on an excursion through places and moments of great beauty and wonder. The friends here are schoolmates Ahmad and Mohammad Reza. Mohammad RezaÃs careless attitude towards his homework has drawn several reprimands from their stern teacher, culminating in the threat of expulsion if he does not mend his ways. When Ahmad prepares to do his own homework, he finds that he has accidentally picked up Mohammad RezaÃs notebook. Fearing that his friend will be expelled if he cannot submit his lesson the next day, Ahmad defies his parents and sets out to find his friendÃs home in the neighboring village.
