This film was one of the most amazing films I have ever seen. I have always been a fan of Persian movies and this is my favorite. The concept is so brilliant and novel! It's one of the most original movie I've seen in a long time. I was amazed by the theme of the movie! The performances were excellent and the screenplay is gripping. That actress who played the mysterious woman! She is so hot! I heard that she won the Persian best actress award the following year! The setting is also beautiful. It takes place in Isfahan and we are given beautiful glimpses of the city and rural areas. 'Yek boos-e koochooloo' is about Life and Death! I'm only surprised that it's not been recognized worldwide. The movie deals with the appreciation of life and how important it is to make the best of it and spend time with loved ones and appreciate its goodness. In a way the movie sort of follows a certain style without special effects but that works very well as it gives an authentic quality.
This is a very deep and meaningful movie that everybody must watch, whether they like it or not!
