10 years of Flick Filosopher: I discover Iranian film

I probably would never have seen The Color of Paradise if I hadn’t been invited to a press screening of it. Because I’m lazy, and because like everyone else, I tend to gravitate toward the comfortable and the familiar. But then I would have missed this:

Think back to the movie that made you fall in love with movies. Do you remembering feeling how it seemed like you had never seen a film before, how what you were seeing onscreen now seemed more real than anything you’d seen before? It’s like falling in love with a person — he or she, the object of your affection, suddenly seems more vivid than everyone else. That’s how The Color of Paradise made me feel… like I was being granted a revelation, shown a secret that few are entrusted with, of hidden perfection.
