An excellent film
5 October 2003 | by (America) – See all my reviews

"Ragbar" is a stellar achievement, especially given it's early place in Iranian cinema. It is a story of a teacher who comes to a new town and falls in love with a girl who is to be wed to a wealthy butcher. The plot is well paced and the storytelling is brilliant. Not only is it touching and funny at the same time, but it is made with a remarkable amount of cinematic wit. If you can get a hold of it, it is a must see.
