Iranian war victim getting treated in Germany successfully. yet the outcome turns fatal!
27 October 2007 | by (Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India) – See all my reviews

The story slowly develops from the perspective of a person to family and then to the society. The strife and pain of war have far flung implications that cross the borders and create emotional turmoil. A well made film with profound impact on the minds. Saeed gets back vision in one eye after a gap of three years, this touching scene clearly brings out the characters so as the scene where the host in Germany, sister of Saeed, watches her son rushing to save her brother from a dog on the street and the conversation between wife and husband, sister and brother in law of Saeed. The war victims are portrayed well with inter cuts from the war clippings. The interviews in the hospital bring out the social angle of war and the vested interests involved in the war game. This Iranian-German film ticks off one to think.
