Movie: "The Song of Sparrows"

In this Iranian movie from 2008, Karim, an ostrich farmer, loses his job on the ostrich farm and inadvertently begins a career transporting people and goods on his motorcycle in Teheran. Attracted by the free discarded materials from building sites in the city he begins accumulating them until he has amassed a huge pile of trash in his yard. After a fall from this pile, he regains his values when his family helps him during the recovery period. The beauty of the images in this movie enhance the slice of life portrait.

My rating: **** (out of 5)
