  2. nouvelle vague 1960's rating of the film The Accordion

    Back in the 1940's De Sica and the screenwriter Zavattini,formulated what became known as Neorealism. Jafar Panahi has long acknowledged this influence and his love of "Ladri Di Biciclette" (1948).In "The Accordion" we essentially have a reworking of this Masterpiece of Humanist Cinema.Panahi has distilled the story down to the tale of brother,sister and a thief. Who all need the Accordion to make money and survive.

  3. Sudipto Basu's rating of the film The Accordion

    The human face of intolerance/censorship and a possible solution. (In a sense, it might be a companion to Kiarostami's Two Solutions For One Problem.) What amazes one is the brevity in which a whole narrative arc is executed. Is it really THAT simple?
