Even on hangman's noose, we are together…
7 December 2011 | by (Hong Kong, China) – See all my reviews

Death is the only destination to the well-educated Iranian gay couple Moshen and Hassan if they continue to stay in the country, and so their fleeing to Europe is nothing surprising. Nevertheless, no mortal hand can divert the path of the destined. You may take a break but you cannot break away. During the escape, chances do pop up for them to secure longer stay in France but it so happens that Destiny stops that.

Saint-Claude is a quiet and uneventful town lying on a large natural park and next to Switzerland. The power of Hassan's quiet courage wonderfully matches the backdrop. In the beginning, one of them nearly misses the train and Hassan questions Moshen if he would wait for him or not. Moshen tellingly states that he loves Hassan very much but never wants to be killed together with him. That's Moshen's attitude towards their relationship. Thus, it is very clear that Hassan's love in this relationship, his love to Moshen is more superior to that of Moshen's. At the end of the story, after this older one is arrested by the French provincial police and to be deported, Hassan in actuality can stay in this small town in a secretive manner. Yet, he does not abandon Moshen (even though Yolande promises to take care of his younger lover when Moshen begs her to do so), rather, he joins in the repatriation with hearty smiles, and of course subsequently the inevitably fateful ending of their life.

Hassan's love is powerful as even death cannot part him from his love.
