In Love with the Enemy
3 September 2007 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

The eight year old war with Iraq has been the source of material for countless Iranian movies. They have ranged from great to poor, from tragedy to comedy, covering almost every conceivable subject related to this war. Ashke Sarma (Tear of the Cold) is one of the best and most original of these films. A small Iranian squadron is fighting Kurdish separatists. The Kurds' main weapon is their expertise in placing mines around the squadron and killing them one by one. In order to distract the soldiers from their mine detection activities, a beautiful Kurdish girl runs around the hills atop the squadron's HQ making noises. This has been a successful decoy resulting in a number of the soldiers being blown up by mines. Help for the squadron, however, arrives in the shape of a young soldier from the engineering corps. He proves an expert in mine detection thus thwarting the rebels' plans. The Kurdish girl is thus assigned with entrapment of the soldier so that her comrades can kill him. Fate, however, naturally entraps the two protagonists in a cave in the bitter cold of the winter and the girl must fight her growing affection for the soldier to be able to fulfill her mission. Tear of the cold is a tense, suspenseful and totally engrossing film. It is very well directed and strikingly photographed. The acting by the young two leads is perhaps the best of their career. It's a film well worth catching.
