more than a movie, it is a manifesto. not only about Iranian realities but about search of sense of many people. in same measure, it is a picture of a society , a manner not for protest but for define rules of a world. a woman and her fight for escape from a dark circle. a bitter , cruel, maybe too honest movie, analysis of a decision growing-up, it is mixture of minimalist tools , cold colors, politic and bureaucracy, slices of modern theater play and inspired definition for solitude. a film like a manifesto. or a form of mute cry. all around a turtle and its escape, with a powerful last scene, remarkable for wise performance of Leyla Zareh.
