The Willow Tree (2005) - Majid Majidi

Who knew I’d be back so quick, but I just watched this total fucking miracle of a film and I thought it would a good chance to fulfill my promise of a positive review. I don’t know how much I can say other than this is the reason I watch movies.

The ant on the windowsill, the flowers at the airport, the purging of a life’s work, the relationship between vision and cinema, between vision and desire. What a gem.

Robert Downey Jr. is sure in a lot of different projects these days.
