Storyline

Since the Islamic Revolution in Iran, capital punishment is carried out according to Islamic law, which gives the family of the victim ownership of the offender's life. Day Break - based on a compilation of true stories and shot inside Tehran's century-old prison - revolves around the imminent execution of Mansour, a man found guilty of murder. When the family of the victim repeatedly fails to show up on the appointed day, Mansour's execution is postponed again and again. Stuck inside the purgatory of his own mind, he waits as time passes on without him, caught between life and death, retribution and forgiveness. Written by Kaaveh

Amazing!
16 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very interesting story and subject matter. The movie received a bunch of awards, all well deserved. It's an introspective, intense, dramatic, heartfelt...and very original movie. It's about a man who waits to receive his capital punishment, but the family of his victim never shows up on D-Day (a condition required by Islamic law). I never knew about this condition before i saw this film. I think it's a very fair way of dealing with crimes and criminals. If only the US could take this film as an example!! So basically this man awaits his death sentence that seems to never come...and the movie is about the agony he goes through in his mind, as he waits to die. An intense movie with phenomenal acting from the main character.
