Abstract:

Iranian Cinema is the most talked-about topic among global audiences at present. One of their most successful Iranian filmmakers is Majid Majidi, whose films have gained plenty of international acclaim. Most of his films showcase strong family bonds and socially relevant plots. Even as the central plot of the movie 'Children of Heaven' revolves around a pair of lost shoes, Majidi shows the beautiful relationship between a brother and sister in the midst of all the struggles and hardships they face. There are a number of scenes in the movie where the siblings' love for each other is narrated through point of view narrative style. This paper analyses and understands how the brotherly and sisterly affection is portrayed in the film through content analysis method.
