Storyline

Dash Akol is greatly respected in Shiraz as an honorable man who has lost his family's money through helping his friends. He has an enemy, however, named Kaka Rostam, a mean and spiteful person. Dash Akol, who is in his forties, falls in love with Marjan, daughter of the late Haji Samad, for whose estate he is the executor. But he keeps his love secret. One day a suitor asks for Marjan's hand, and Dash Akol considers it against his code of honor to refuse. On the night of the wedding, Dash Akol hands over responsibility for the family to the bridegroom. As he is leaving the house, however, Kaka Rostam is waiting for him and a fight ensues. Kaka Rostam stabs him in the back, but Dash Akol succeeds in killing him. On his deathbed, Dash Akol sends his parrot to Marjan with the confession of love he has taught it. Written by Kaaveh

A Must-See!
17 August 2004 | by (Beverly Hills, CA) – See all my reviews

Forget about the technical limitations that the movie has. Forget about the fact that for some strange reason in most Iranian movies the actors' real voices were not used and everything was dubbed (annoying). The movie version of this beautiful story was written very well and acted superbly. It is hard to believe how moved I was to see this movie at a tender age of 10 and for it to have had such a life-long impact on me.

Mary Apick, a young girl herself, was fantastic, as usual. It is obvious that acting is in her blood.

Although the story takes place many years before the movie was made, it appropriately demonstrates certain aspects of the Iranian culture that is still very much alive.

If you don't speak Persian, look for a copy of this movie with subtitles. You'll love it.
