"One of those rare works in which the perfect rendering of simple
elements produces a small, unforgettable masterpiece. The film's two
main characters are boys poised between childhood and manhood. Both
are poor. The boy through whose eyes we experience the drama has lost
his father in the war and seems to have only the bleakest of
prospects, until a relative finds him a choice apprentice's position
in a print shop. But there is a catch; another boy coveting the spot
has also been taken on, with the better of the two getting the
permanent job after a trial period. Thus begins a fierce if somewhat
covert rivalry that results in workplace sabotage, fighting and then,
very surprisingly, friendship" (Godfrey Cheshire, Film Comment). Farsi
with English subtitles.
