It's an exhilarating display of filmic artistry.

Doesn't have the emotional heft of his "Children of Paradise," but it's still moving.

A beautifully told story of a child's innocence and faith, filmed with exquisite detail and stunning cinematography

The film's climax involves a father and son reunion that is tense, tragic and, finally, as transcendent as Mohammad himself.

This miniature epic is a film that, like its young hero, will enrich those who peer into its poignant heart.

Seductively pastoral but also a bit slight, the movie saves its best scene for the very end.
