The White Balloon (1995)

A winner at Cannes last year, Jafar Panahi's THE WHITE BALLOON is a 
ground-breaker for Iran and, well, a bit of a bore for America.  
Sure, it's fine as a cultural snapshot, but this real-time story of 
a little girl who loses her goldfish money is too mild to be moving.

Grade:  C+
