A waste of time
23 April 2004 | by (Orange County, CA) – See all my reviews

Unlike some recent movies coming from Iran that move you through their plot and daring expression of pain and suffering of women and young generation, House on the Water is a big disappointment. I purchased the DVD because of my familiarity with Entezami's acting ability and was hoping that this movie would be similar to his many great movies he has done in the past. Although he well in this movie, but House on the Water was overall, a waste of time. There is a small part by Jamshid Mashayekhi another great Iranian actor. But Entezami and Mashayekhi's presence is not enough to carry the movie.
