Our take

Walk, don’t run! Persuading children to save rough and tumble for playtime, Abbas Kiarostami shows the repercussions of knockabout behavior in school corridors and on the bus. Causing a ruckus is all good and fun—but when it comes to getting from A to B, sometimes slow and steady wins the race!
