GD Star RatingThe Runner (Iran-Movie) (1985),
- Part autobiographical and part allegorical, “The Runner” (“Davandeh”) is about an orphaned boy Amiro (Majid Niroumand) living alone in an abandoned boat in an unnamed Iranian seaside town. On the surface the film covers the familiar territory of childhood among the impoverished neighborhood, but what distinguishes Amir Naderi’s influential film from other similar-themed movies is the passion of the central character Amiro (probably the alter ego of the director), or his fierce passion for life. The Iranian film may be slow-moving for some viewers, but offers a rewarding experience with a life-affirming energy.
- Amiro makes a living by collecting thrown-away bottles, selling cold water and shining shoes. The life is not easy, but the undaunted boy knows what he wants and is ready to fight to get it. For Amiro, to fight means to run, like running after a freight train, running after a customer who does not pay, or running to touch a light airplane he loves watching.
