A movie worth watching.
27 October 2003 | by (Orange County, CA) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie on DVD that I had purchased a while back.This is the first movie by Ebraheim Hatamikia that I really understood. His first couple of movies were all about the Iran-Iraq war and did not get to me as much. But Ertefae Past was something different. I is a great movie especially if you are a little bit familiar with the people from South-Western region of Iran. The character of the mother was played well. Ghassem, the main male character did an excellent job. It was evident that the director had to deal with a lot of limitation imposed on him by censors. He did a great job addressing issues and viewpoints of different characters.
