Baran - 2001
First of all, for all those who don't know Persian(Farsi), Baran is a Farsi word which means rain and in the movie it is the name of the girl in the lead role. Baran is an excellent mind-blowing movie by Iranian movie director Majid Majidi. The movie is Everything in the movie is just marvelous. It is a story of a boy who works at construction site and a girl who also works at that construction site but disguises herself as a boy. The way the movie is also amazing. The Lateef is left alone with the footprint of Baran's shoe in the mud and rain starts pouring. The movie also pinpoints the life of Afghan refugees living on the outskirts of Tehran. This is seriously a must watch movie.
