One of the very few movies that made me cry.
6 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ali Hatami did it again. Probably for the last time in his great life, he made a movie that will keep his name above all other directors . He has gathered all these superstars including:Amin Tarokh, Akbar Abdi, Hamid Jebeli, Mohammad ALi Keshavarz, Jalal Moghaddam, Jamshid HAshempoor and her daughter, Leila Hatami to make the one and only musical film of our country, Iran. While Ahmad Shah Ghajar is ruling in Iran, a French businessman takes responsibility to take some of the best Iranian musicians to Paris and record some of the oldest Iranian traditional songs and music. Agha Hosein Delnavaz takes responsibility of the artists. The French businessman leaves them by themselves when they reach Paris, but Agha Hosein Delnavaz sells his home to provide the money to finish the job and record the songs. The money of selling the house also finishes and the group now has to put a concert to make money. In the concert, Taher Khan who is the singer sings so deeply and puts the light back in the eyes of a Turkish Princes. Taher Khan dies in doing that and the rest of the group leave France to Iran by the ship. The ship sinks by the flames of the first world war, with all the records and artists in it. I don't know why, but I cried watching this movie and that doesn't happen often. The songs by Mohammadreza Shajarian and the traditional music is so deep and so strong that can make anybody cry. The feelings are very strong and the end kills you. Watching this movie is a must for whoever who loves films, musics, or love.
