Good...
17 May 2005 | by (Islamic Republic of Iran) – See all my reviews

Mehrjui is the greatest director of Iran...he made many great movies like : The Cow - The Cycle(Dayereye Mina) - The Postman - Hamoun and... And he introduced Iranian cinema to the world with " The Cow ". Mom s guest(Mehmane Maman)is the last movie of Mehrjui and its very good comedy and it shows life of poor people of Iran perfectly. plays are very good especially Golab Adineh(as Mom) and Parsa Piruz-Far(as Yousef) directing of Mehrjui is very good like the past Mom s guest is not as good as the Cow and the cycle but its good for entertainment. The story based on the novel by Houshang Moradi Kermani (in the name of Mom s Guest). The movie shows us how iranian people help each other in bad situations and Mehrjui was successful to show this.
