The Song of Sparrows is a 2008 Iranian film which reminded me of a story in Chapter 12 of “The Great Divorce” by C.S. Lewis. Both in Lewis’ excellent book (in Google books) and Majid Majidi’s film, we see a theme of how small, poor decisions can slowly build a momentum to corrupt a person’s beauty transforming them into an entirely different creature. In Majidi’s film we fine fortunate redemption and glimpses of several segments of Iranian society.
