The Color of Paradise

"Weak"

The Color of Paradise Review


Life has to suck pretty badly when you live in Iran. But if you're a blind kid and your dad wants to be rid of you? Fuggedaboudit.

The Color of Paradise borders on hopeless, with a spiritual message available to those who struggle through it. Unfortunately, the tale of the cursed young Mohammed (Ramezani) is muddled by the subplot of a dying grandmother, a familiar story of a woman trying to let go of life. Zzzzz. Sad and tragic, with but a glimmer of hope at the end.

Oh, and as it turns out, the actual color of paradise is burnt orange. Who knew?

Aka Rang-e khoda.
