Storyline

Kensington supermarket cash register clerk Tracy Pringle looses her job for daydreaming about the romantic Orient. Sass and the fruit of fascination for the East get her employed as salesclerk in rich, sophisticated Iranien ex-pat Saaman "Sam" Sahar's exclusive vegetarian restaurant and soon wins his sensual, yet not sexual attention. Her boyfriend Richar, whom she dumps after a blatant infidelity, tries to turn the authorities on them after discovering he has a 'harem' consisting of a legal wife and two mundane Iranian 'consort' ladies, actually more protégées.

It s a lovely movie
27 December 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It was a lovely movie, i have never seen any one addressing an Islamic subject any better. It rightly expresses the true spirit of Islam the way it is seen and practised by the Muslims.

it showed the Iranina culture and dresses and showed the difference of the delicate nature of the Iranian culture and the roughness of the English daily life. At the same time it showed that once a person breaks into the English social circles then they get accepted.

This film gives a positive image of Islam at a time when all you hear about Islam is negative. This movies is an excellent guide to understand problems faced by other faiths and the power of mutual respect and co existence
