love
7 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It was a long time I wished for a love movie. Just like the love itself, love movies exist, but not something that you can find very easy.

"Shabhaye Roshan" is an excellent movie about love. The title is from a short story from "Dostoevsky", which I have not read myself but I know that the main character in a "dreamer". This movie is a praise of literature and love. every single dialouge is like a poem, with a very strong end.

I don't want to say that this movie does not have any weak points, sometimes it has so unrealistic aspects, but this may be reasonable in a story about love and literature. This is the second movie from the director, which is very strong for a beginner, though he is not very active and thus may have enough time to progress too much in his works. his first movie was never shown in Iran.
