      A Heart of Gold - A Brief Review of "Barron"

      In the 1980s, a large number of war-torn Afghan civilians were forced to flock to Iran, struggling to survive. Barron, one of the protagonists of the film, is one of the refugees. His father, who worked as a black worker on a construction site in Iran, broke his leg in an accident. Seeing that the family's survival was unsustainable, Barron, the eldest daughter, went to the construction site in disguise to replace his father's work. In the days that followed, Barron met Latif, an Iranian...

      "The fire of separation sets the heart on fire"

      Barron didn't say a word.
      Latif always thinks about her being on the construction site, and she has become different in Tehran
      , a refugee settlement. She left because of her status. He went to find her. She supported the whole family with her tender and clean hands . Going down, going alone and pouring out all that she has survived in the misery that cannot be escaped, but the cold wind can't blow away the hairpin he left on the brim of his hat, and the rain can't drown her muddy...

      16 year old love

      I remember saying in that movie that everyone knows the name, when one day you fall in love with the person you once hated the most, this feeling is the most deadly.

      We always try to prove that we don't fall into stereotypes, the traps that our predecessors have fallen into countless times. In the end, he was always elated, and happily fell another dog to eat shit in the same place. There is nothing new under this Sunshine. This is life.

      love with heart

        Because of the poor family background, the girl had to go to the construction site to work, and the construction site did not accept girls. So she disguised herself as a boy. Doing things that only men can do, and then cooking for the workers, spending all day alone in a dilapidated room full of condiments.
        The boy didn't like him from the first day she came, broke her things, spat at her cooking, and destroyed her confidence.
        But when the curtain of the broken house was...

      love inspires compassion

      The film selected by the art museum, I wanted to watch it casually, but I was deeply moved.

      The background of the story is that in Iran, the Iranian people live very hard, but the Afghan people under the war are even more bitter. In order to make a living, Afghans secretly go to Iran to work illegally. The heroine Barron's father is such an Afghan illegal worker. He broke his leg while working on the site, but could not receive any compensation or care. Barron disguised as a...

      The technique is particularly realistic, but the narrative is smooth and not procrastinated. The language of the camera lens is so powerful that it is like reading a novel to read the meaning between the lines, so that the viewer can also feel the pity and affection that the work is full of, and feel the creator's accusation of the war. The turbulent situation makes people displaced and life is difficult. loss of dignity. But even so, life still leaves some precious things to people, giving...

      The hydroponic green radish, the wind blowing the curtain, the back of the girl combing her hair, the hairpin with the hair, the young man playing with crutches on the road, a shoe print in the mud and a tear of the young man, such a delicate camera language. The boy and the girl didn't have a single conversation for an hour and a half, but there was a strong tension in the calm narrative, and I almost cried when the two finally looked at each other. At the moment when the girl put down the...

      A love that grows in silence. Really moving. Iranian films always have a kind of rustic power, their actors are always extraordinarily real and sincere, and the girls are...

      Focusing on Afghan refugees in Iran from the perspective of an Iranian youth. The young man's attitude towards Barron (that is, Rama disguised as a man) is so abrupt that he desperately gives Barron's family a whole year's wages and even sells his identity. But it can be explained by the youth's innocence or the moment of obsession (the wind blows the door curtain, revealing the mirror inside the house, in which the youth sees Barron dressing). The ending scene is full of...

    Movie plot

    When the Soviet Union withdrew from Afghanistan in 1989, the country was immediately plunged into a chaotic civil war. Millions of refugees poured into neighboring countries, with Iran alone hosting more than 1.4 million. The younger generation of Afghan refugees was born in Iran, and their homeland is only a strange and distant name for them. They struggle in poverty, and most are limited to the hardest jobs for low wages - like...
