Sokout
(1998)

AKA: The Silence

Country: Iran

Genre: Drama

IMDb

Synopsis

Because of his special gift in identifying objects by the sounds they make, a blind young boy is employed as a string instrument tuner in a small village in Tajikistan. He may be blind but that does not mean he cannot see. On his way to work, he could tell the quality of the bread the young girls along the streets are peddling by simply touching their wares. His world is made more colorful and quaint because of his sensitivity to his surroundings.

Notes

  • Tahmineh Normatova, who very convincingly plays the 10-year-old blind boy Khorshid, is in fact a girl.
  • Writer and director Mohsen Makhmalbaf (b. 1957) won three separate awards at the 1998 Venice Film Festival for this film.

A beautiful and enchanting film, but I'm knocking off a couple of points for casting a girl as a boy!
