This is a 2005 Iranian film directed by Majid Majidi.
It tells the story of Youssef, a man blinded in a fireworks accident, when eight years old.
After an operation he regains his vision, changing his life in unexpected ways.
It is an interesting story, but I can't believe that a blind university professor get disorganized mentally like this once he gets a sight.
This story must be a fiction based on a somewhat similar story because such a disorganized man couldn't possibly become a univetsity professor in the first place.

intense, but poetic medication of life. This movie by the brilliant Iranian director Majid Majidi seems deeper and more truthful to life and humanity than the American counterpart, "Awakenings" (staring De Niro and Robin Williams)

Brilliant Iranian Director, Majid Majidi, gives his darkest and deepest masterpiece in "The Willow Tree." A renowned professor has been blind since an early age. After a miraculous operation in France he sees his wife and daughter for the very first time. The filming of this rendezvous is in itself is a masterpiece of the highest order. How Majidi develops the story is brilliant. He contrasts the profound insight of the blind professor and the blinkered, fool with vision.
