Although slow moving for my American tastes in movies, this film about a woman's identity in life is rich with meaning.
Country girl Amanagol is sent from her home with her long hair shaved off by her father and in a boy's clothes to earn money weaving carpets. While toiling for a merchant, in her disguise as a male, she attracts the attention of the young women working by her side.
Love scenes were cut from the movie at the last minute to gain release from the Iranian censors.
The DVD contains a booklet with an explanatory essay by film critic Judy Stone.
In Farsi language with English subtitles
