Flights got canceled worldwide on September 11, 2001. Ebrahim Hatamikia's "Ertefa'e Past" ("Low Heights" in English) depicts one proceeding. And what happens aboard this particular plane while affect the passengers for the rest of their lives. To be certain, what happens at the end looks as if it evokes the path that the world was going to take as a result of 9/11.
Leila Hatami (of "A Separation") plays the wife. The character looks delicate, but her exterior hides a tough side. A person would have to be tough to get through what's gone on in these people's lives before the flight. I particularly liked some of the camera angles that the movie uses to tell the story. I recommend the movie.
PS: Co-writer Asghar Farhadi went on to direct "A Separation".
