23 December 2005 | by (Berlin, Deutschland) – See all my reviews

This film, of course, is very deliberately theatrical, in mise-en-scène as well as acting - the director being one of the most famous theater authors and directors of Iran. Forget all preconceived notions of Iranian "new realism" (Kiarostami and the like) when watching any of Beyzaie's films. This is truly different and, interestingly, far more popular in the director's home country. Beyzaie in fact is one of the most refined stylist among filmmakers working today, planing and staging every scene with most meticulous care for every movement the camera and the actors make. It's a shame really that almost none of his work is visible in the Western world of cinema.
