The movie Baran is a romance that centers around Lateef, a young girl of 17. She is quickly falling in love with Rahmat who is a hard working young man. However, Rahmat has a huge secret that will change their lives forever once it is revealed. The setting is Tehran, and Rahmat is an Afghan refugee. This is a silent film with very little sound or music at all. Yet the story is easy to follow and the action allows the viewers to capture the jest of what is taking place without any difficulty. All is not what it seems, so you do have to keep a good eye on the screen and what is unfolding. The movie Baran won The Best Film Award at the Montreal Film Festival. The outcome of the movie is one that makes you understand that true love is about protecting and helping someone else. It doesn’t always mean that the love story unfolds the way that you want it or that you get to dictate the future. Yet people do leave footprints on our hearts and that is the magic in all of it.
