A film about the magic of cinema
30 June 2001 | by (Long Island, New york) – See all my reviews

This film has many characteristics of classic cinema. It contains action, adventure, and romance. This film was made in Iran. The protagonist looks almost like Charlie Chaplain. He is given a chance to make films for the emperor. There are many scenes of people running on and off of movie screens, and in and out of old kinetiscope projectors. Some people might find this erratic, and tedious, but it helps project an idea of fantasy, or forgetting about ones problems, becoming engrossed in a film. This film is quite enjoyable, it is a sort of history of Iranian films. I give it an 8/10.
