It's better to travel hopefully that to arrive
12 May 2001 | by (Tehran, Iran) – See all my reviews

There is a scene in this movie that M sweeps Mahmood's tears. This scene is the most romantic scene I have ever seen in a movie. We think if we reach to a point then there would be no pain, but when we reach, the pain still exists, in other forms. Mahmood always try to reach, but he gets nothing. As a teenager he tries to make M loves him. As a young man he tries to bring peace and comfort to the nation and as an adult he wants to be a famous writer, but in all of these periods he feels that this is not the thing he was searching for. As a teenager M asks him to steal, and Mahmood's mother punishes him. As an adult he has the mission for political hidden acts, and he ends up in jail. What if he could marry M? It would come to an ordinary life without love. He says: 'My best book is the one that I have not written' Similar things happen in different circumstances, but as growing older the problems get more difficult to solve. In his whole life he sees a web that reminds him as his life, he is bended in his thoughts.

I really love the first half of the movie and it is really nostalgic. Golshifte Farahani does a wonderful acting in her first experience. The music fits the movie, although it was not composed for it.
