one of the real drams
23 December 2004 | by (NL) – See all my reviews

that looks really good film for you if you have lived in Iran for long time. this film points to some kind of customs and cultures in Iran needs you to be an Iranian if you want to realize it.for whom they are outside of Iran and they've heard about Iranian cinema this could not be an interesting movie. because they will not get what is going on. however most of people inside Iran really like it and that is one of the most beautiful films ever made. Mozhdeh Shamsai was playing very nice in this film as well as Reza Kianian, Darioush Arjmand and etc. this film contains a whole bunch of famous Iranian movie players inside. perhaps this is the reason film has a very strong structure to express its message for audiences. I gave it 95 out of 100. one of the best in Iranian cinema.
