In the movie "Vingar av glas" (Wings of glass)we meet Nazli, nicely performed by Sara Sommerfeld. Her family is from Iran, but since she has lived in Sweden all her life she's feeling rather Swedish, which of course causes conflicts with the traditions of Islam. Her father Abbas has one primary mission in life, and that is to marry his daughters to good persian men, just as the traditions say. Nazli and the father live thru enormous crisis when she meets Johan, a good old Swedish party animal with pilots, leather jacket and hangy pants. Abbas frenetically tries to get her interested in her cousin Hamid, but mostly she is disgusted of him, and later she hates him.
So what can you say? The movie is engaging and probably made for the youth. It's all about a problem in Swedish society, a more common problem than most of us think, I guess. To deliver the message director Reza Bagher has filled out the plot with a lot of warm humour and typical Swedish teenage phenomenons to keep the engagement alive thru out the movie. All actors, most of them unknown to a Swedish audience, do a great job - where did they all come from?
