Instead of tackling difficult issues like battle of the sexes, emancipation of women, equal rights of both genders in the society and marital problems through a serious and no-nonsense manner, the Iranian director (who is also an architect), Tahmineh Milani chose to approach these matters through a comedy. It was her intention to do so, as she said it herself when the movie was introduced in her presence. The movie delves around Sayeh, a successful and strong-willed female engineer who was on her way to file for divorce from her chaotic marriage with the equally confident and chauvinistic husband, Yousef.
Instead of finding the lawyer who was supposed to handle the divorce, she ended up in the office of a therapist who convinced her (and later the husband) to try to work things out and get in touch with their "inner child". Between comical flashbacks and humorous affairs with family and friends, this movie succeeded in dealing with the touchy problems of this beautiful couple's marital life in a light and entertaining manner. But can the marriage still be salvaged? Or did they go their separate ways? Find out for yourself and listen to your "inner child", watch this beautiful movie, which was already a box office hit in its home country, Iran.
