An Exile-Movie again but in a different way.
29 January 2009 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

It is not easy just to give this rating point because I liked this movie in many ways and I know (as the director said in the theater of Max Ophüls Festival) that he researched and worked for this Film about 7 Years. There are two parts; the film itself is great, clever, funny and lovely in an intelligent way beside of some clichés. This part has all of his elements for a well-made humanistic movie. The other part is somehow political so actually I don't want to talk about it, because I don't know much about this. But as I know almost every other exile movies about this subject, this is just a remade and it repeats the story of the political refugees. I don't want to say that the story is not true but it is not fair to always represent this country in this way, specially in this time that we have not too much Movie titles about this country. So why always this subject? What about something new? Just look at the "Persepolis" , of course it is somehow the same way but the story is really wide ranged. So people, if you are going to invest so much time and money to make film, please go for something new. I think we have enough titles about this subject.
