Pretentious misfire, just short of unwatchable
4 August 2014 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

I tend to like Iranian cinema, but this tale of an urban middle class couple (Kaveh, played by Mani Haghighi, who also wrote and directed the movie, and Leyla, played by the lovely Taraneh Alidoosti, who has starred in several films of director Asghar Farhadi), going through the impoverished countryside, throwing bags of money to poor peasants, seems contrived and pretentious. Their motives are never made clear, in fact neither it is whether they are in fact a couple or a brother and a sister. Leyla comes across as a particularly loathsome character, always irritable for no reason, not a mean feat as she is portrayed by the lovely Alidoosti.

This is a one idea movie, and a confused idea at that. If the best Iranian cinema is characterized by its humanistic, compassionate view towards its poor subjects, this movie is instead awfully and painfully condescending towards them. Add to that the incredibly pretentious and unbelievable dialogue, and this is an almost unwatchable film.
