A great idea that could be rendered stronger and with more criticism
30 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kamal Tabrizi's new feature has one thing in common with his previous movie 'Marmoolak (The Lizard)'. He is unveiling the true nature of organized religion again but from a different angle. This time, he is not blaming a body of hypocrite clergies, but revealing how the people and believers in religions are lost in their quest of finding divine.

While referencing to a lot of movies of the same nature (it is inevitable not to think of Bunuel's movies and some of Felini's while watching Yek Tekeh Nan), he tackles the concept of God from a philosophical point of view, but fails to bring the movie to a higher level and to add more controversy to the point he is making.

There is a lot of good spiritual references and lessons of self-awareness and finding one's path and following it, that could be read between the lines.

The ascetic and other-worldly scenes are a bit too obvious and could have been done more poetically and with more subtlety.

Tabrizi is as good as before in the use of colloquial language and street humor and in the character development.

He is a good filmmaker who was able to deliver 75% of his potential in this one.
