Storyline

Donya is a young, attractive single woman who has just returned to Tehran from abroad. She seeks the help of Hadji Reza Enayat, the conservative and stern owner of a real estate agency, to look for a house. We sense that she has an ulterior motive but that motive will not surface until the end of the movie. She puts on the charm and Hadji falls head over heels in love with her and proposes marriage despite being already married to a loving and pious wife. Awkward and funny situations develop as he tries to keep his affair secret from his family. Written by Anonymous

transnational relationships
21 August 2013 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I've seen a few Iranian movies over the years: "A Taste of Cherries" and "A Separation" are among the notable ones. Another interesting one is Manuchehr Mosayeri's "Donya". Hedieh Tehrani plays a woman who's just returned to Iran after spending some time abroad. She starts up a relationship with a conservative older man who already has a family.

This is not one of those movies that throws a lot of things on the screen to catch your attention. Quite the opposite, it requires an attention span since it's all about the characters and their relationships. The subtitles on the copy that I saw were a little bit funny, but it's a movie that I really recommend. One of the most important things that it shows is that behind Iran's government is a population that has to live its day-to-day lives. The election of a moderate to Iran's presidency has created a new opportunity for a lessening of tensions between the US and Iran, so it's important to seize the opportunity.
