Under the skin of another part of the city!
25 May 2007 | by (Islamic Republic of Iran) – See all my reviews

Bani Etemad made "Under the City's Skin" in 2001. Back there, she pointed out deep problems of the society after 1997 election. Although was mostly about the city of Tehran, it managed to bring the difficulties of living in a clerical society to the silver screen where a completely different story is going on under skin. While "Under the City's Skin" was mostly about the working class of the society, "Khoon Bazi" points on a different class. Sara and her family don't seem to have any kind of financial problems. Unlike many of the Iranian movies about the matter of addiction, this time a young girl of the upper class is facing a tragedy. She nervously watches her fiancé dancing with a doll wearing her wedding dress. Being happy of her upcoming wedding, her bipolar behavior intensifies during the journey with her mother. Mother also has a different behavior in comparison with typical Iranian women previously seen in such movies. She tries to understand her daughter and fix the problem in order to not letting her break inside. But, she sometimes fails to fill the huge generation gap; a gap like an ocean between the life of socially successful mother and her daughter's absurd one. "Khoon Bazi" barely tries to find the roots of the problem though it sometimes gets close to this matter. It just magnifies the problem in order to let it be seen. "Khoon Bazi" even does not have a clear ending. It is not important if Sara gets well or not; addiction remains and might hit a wider range.
