“A heart-rending story with unexpected depth of emotion… it has guts and heart and a grubby, street-smart charisma. It’s one of the finest films playing in this year’s Venice competition…” “Energetic and heartfelt, tipping towards tragedy, Sun Children crawls through the mud and emerges all the stronger. The quest is a red herring; the real treasure is the film.”

 

THE GUARDIAN

“Quite the thrill ride, mixing a Dickensian, social-realist account of children in poverty in Tehran with a kinetic, far-fetched heist movie… a crowdpleaser…a thrilling portrait of youth… (with) scene- stealing Shamila Shirzad turning in the best performance of the film.”

 

INDIEWIRE

“Refreshing… A film that has its heart firmly in the right place.”

 

SCREEN INTERNATIONAL

“Iranian director Majid Majidi has made some of the most visually stunning and emotionally stirring films in world cinema about the plight of under-privileged, exploited and abused young people, and Sun Children is one of his very best.”
