Since its premiere at Cannes, this heart-warming film has won prizes and golden opinions, plus a nomination for best foreign film at the Oscars. Implausibly perhaps, a boy, Zain, in jail, sues his parents for giving birth to him. But he’s really infuriated (he’s always angry) by the grotesque indignity and cruelty to which his parents have submitted as result of their poverty. A cry from the heart? More an angry shout!
