A seven-year-old girl navigates the busy streets of Tehran while trying to buy a goldfish in the utterly charming 1995 debut of Jafar Panahi. Cowritten by Abbas Kiarostami, the film captures the city landscape through a child's ever-curious eyes, lingering on all the marvels and misadventures encountered along the way. “A reminder that the simplest forms of filmmaking can be the most satisfying” (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times), this movie earned Cannes’ Caméra d’Or.
