It got a great ability to make you guys cry!!!
18 March 2004 | by (Tehran, Iran) – See all my reviews

POSSIBLE SPOILERS INCLUDED!

It's hard to talk about something associated with mother but here it can deliver before our eyes!

However, I have seen this movie a while ago; it got still its connection with my soul especially the performance conducted by Akbar Abdi as a retarded son of an old mom.

Let's start just have an overview of great performances here delivered by great Iranian actors. Unforgettable acting by Akbar Abdi there made me gain a lot of touching, heart-caressing, awesome moments I have ever had. He's dependant on his mom and couldn't imagine he would lose her in some time. While his mom died, he delivered an atypical reaction to this occasion by just simply saying `Mom has died' (in Iranian language: `Madar Mord!'). This moment gave an exceptional thrill I had through the movie and even now it does. On the opposite side we could learn the opposite-tempered brother acted admirably by Mohamad Ali Keshavarz who looks forward to having his mom's funeral. A great compliment on Akbar Abdi's performance here is Farimah Farjami's like hers in `Last Act (Pardeye-Akhar)'. She madly loves her mom and has a great respect to her like Akbar Abdi.

At last it gives us a notion and belief what sort of guy we'd be like corresponding to these different-natured siblings in this movie with our mom.

I highly recommend for whom want to know how to adore their parents.

Habib's Assessment: 10 / 10!
