The White Balloon (84 mins)
Jafar Panahi’s masterpiece about a little girl who won’t take no for an answer. Razieh wants a new goldfish to celebrate the Iranian New Year, even though she’s already got several. But when her mum caves in and gives her the money, that’s only the start of her adventure. Utterly real, quietly hilarious, totally brilliant, Panahi has crafted one of the most honest films ever made.
