A Rock and a Hard Place
17 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Highly recommended for its human comedy and revealing, fine acting. You won't see something like this coming out of Hollywood. The story is almost a shaggy dog, but keeps out of sentiment or farce. Male bonding, unbonding, rebonding, coming to the realization of aging and the mysteries of friendship. You'll feel better about Iranians after the film, so it's also a "feel good" movie. A fine example of film being a universal language. You will remember it as if you were along on the trip yourself. The cast is superb and works with a good ensemble feel, including a couple of wives/sweethearts who are searching for the men on the mountain road and some passersby who can't help but stop and get in on the action, including an old man with a donkey who plays an integral part. The donkey, that is. Tip - top.
