A desolate gas station in a remote (I really mean it!) part of North East of Iran becomes the bedrock of several stories about love, forgiveness, betrayal, dishonesty and honesty! The new wave of Iranian Filmmakers and their style of Cinéma vérité have come to the attention of many international festivals. From master filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami to his collaborators such as Bahman Ghobadi and Jafar Panahi and recently Saman Salour who are creating masterful films and changing the face of cinema in Iran. This beautiful, ethereal work of art is so powerful and so universal that enthralls you and keeps you admiring from the beginning until the bravura finale. The simple, eloquent and powerful screenplay is matched by Salour's minimalist direction and Aslani's terrific cinematography to create an unforgettable movie whose images will stay with you for a long time and are definitely good reminders of work of another master filmmaker, Emir Kusturica . Kudos too, to superior acting from the entire cast. a real sleeper. don't miss this one.
