Great , if you want to catch a few zzzz's in the cinema
22 February 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I went to see this as part of the Dublin Film Festival. It sounded good on paper so I was expecting good things. While , it is beautifully shot and shows the Iranian countryside in all its glory I found this movie to be incredibly boring . Nothing much happens and a lot of the characters are not developed fully. Most of the action takes place in the car in which they are travelling or along the road in the Iranian countryside. To be quite honest , only for I was in the middle of a row I would have left this film early as it nearly put me to sleep. I gave it a 4 and most of that was for the cinematography of the Iranian countryside. Avoid .
