Desiderium lyrically charts the hapless loves of a three brother: Majid, they young handicapped brother with a deformed head falls in love with Aghdas, a prostitute hired by his eldest brother Habib to entertain him, not knowing the truth about her profession. Karim, the middle brother is so infatuated with a quail that he almost completely ignores his wife and her emotions. Habib himself is in love with Foroogh, a tailor lady who lives with them, while his sense of responsibility about Majid keeps him from requiting her affections. Written by Ramin S. Khanjani

one of the best Persian movies
6 May 2011 | by (Iran) – See all my reviews

First I watched this movie when I was about 10 years old. After watching again after about 12 years I see that I understood nothing that time. I just remembered some scenes also I knew how it would end.

We can see a lot about Persian traditions in this movie like other works of Ali Hatami. Old houses and families live together. And also couples who eat food in the same plate. I don't think anybody live like this in Iran now. Behrouz Vosoughi was amazing. A different act as a crazy brother. Scenes where he is talking to himself are great.

Great Dialogues is an important characteristics of Hatami's movies. I love dialogs of this movie.
