Outstanding; Iran's got SOME TALENT! all the music is smart, rich and exotic.The image!! JUST PERFECT! Such a GREAT FILM!I loved the choice of rushes along with the songs. Bahaman Ghobadi! You became one of my idols along with kiarostami !! The cast: I have a problem with Negar. She really has to show some more feelings and energy in her acting she has a weaker singing voice than all the rest of musicians. She needs to work on her articulations and her voice. Ashcan was good, Nader was off the hook, amazing! All the bands are Great however 2 musical performances gave me goose bumps: Mirza band's Emshab and Rana Farhan's Drunk with love. The movie is a success and is worth all the prizes it won. Iranian cinema is a school itself. Not only i have respect to the cinema in Iran, after watching this movie I got captivated by the exotic and rich music they have. Censure and prohibition in their case helped their works and they were strong enough to rise above and come up with such exquisite art full of taste, feelings and professionalism. Thumbs up Iran!
