Masterpiece
25 May 2005 | by (canada) – See all my reviews

In my opinion, 'Madar' or 'Mother' is the best Persian movie of all times. The beautiful text written by Hatami and excellent performances along with the touching sensational story makes a masterpiece that only Hatami was able to make. The movie is very deeply dependent to Persian culture that can be considered as a typical Persian classical cultural piece of art. Maybe the only drawbacks of the movie are its high dependence to Persian culture which makes it almost impossible to be watched by non Persians, and its heavy kind of old literature which makes it even hard to understand for some Persian people. However, I love both of these features of it. I love it all, everything in it and every moment of it. I do not think there will be any better Persian movie in future too as there have not been so far.
