Storyline

After 22 years, Aziz decides to return to his hometown, to sell some family possessions, including the house where he was born. But for his astonishment, the place is now a small restaurant, run by four women, one of them a girl whom he once dated. Attieh, the girl, tries to convince him not to sell the place by, instead of telling him a story a day as Sheherazade, cooking him a delicious dish every day. Written by lukejoplin@infolink.com.br

A tale of old love and fine food
22 December 2007 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

Mahiha ... bears many similarities with another notable Iranian film, Cafe Transit. In both movies a single mother uses her culinary skills to run a restaurant and support her daughter. Food also plays a pivotal role in both films and perhaps even more so here where director Rafii and his famed cinematographer Kalari make sure that the camera lingers on every dish prepared. The main difference is that here the central character is a man, Aziz (Reza Kianian), an ex-political prisoner, returning home after 22 years and re-igniting an old love affair with Atieh (Roya Nonahali) who is running a restaurant , in a property still owned by Aziz, to support her daughter. Aziz's return raises questions in the restaurant and within the small coastal community: has he returned to reclaim his old property or his old love? Mahiha is a less complex film than Cafe Transit and has a slenderer storyline. It is, however, finely acted by the two leads and is consistently engaging and watchable. Kalari's camera work, is another major plus.
