Amazing Movie that was unnoticed
19 March 2011 | by (Paris) – See all my reviews

In the like of Slumdog millionaire and the best of middle east and central Asia cinema, Tehroun shows us how it is possible to create a visual masterpiece,an emotionally moving story and having it played by unknown - but full of talents - improvised actors. This movie could easily compete in the largest festivals and should have won the Oscar for best foreign language film in 2010, it could have helped Iran and the Iranians in demonstrating the world that the large majority of them is not supporting its oppressive government and wish hard to be as open as civilizations in the west.

Give Tehroun a chance, you won't regret it!
