Zad is a revolutionist who is trying to free his country, but most of his plans went wrong. He has been looking for a woman for more than three years believing that she holds many secrets within herself that are capable of saving him, the entire world and maybe earth! Now he's on a mission to convince her to go with him in order to rebuild what he has destroyed, he believes that she has changed a lot while she believes she has never met him! Will Zad succeed in convincing her and eventually saves the humanity and the planet? (When Time Becomes a Woman) is a film that takes you into a journey of self-discovery. It takes place in one location with two characters only. Could this 70-minute meeting change both of their lives and fate? Could they take decisions that they long feared to take? This first Sci-Fi Arabic film aims to portray human stories within nothing but dialogue and emotions. Written by
another version of "conversation with other woman (2005)
but this time the setting is outdoor, on the brink of the
soon-to-be-dried-up "dead sea". what we got here is a screenplay trying
so hard to be philosophically deep yet at the same time totally
clueless and pointless. the guy is what? looking for this mysterious
woman, a missing person, for three years. when he first showed up, i
bet 99.9% viewers would think that he was chased by a posse, a guy
running away or escaping from a prison. the he ran up the mountain
pass, found the woman who was loitering along the road. he claimed that
he's been looking for her for three years and asking her to come back
with him to some mysterious location to SAVE THE WORLD! yeah, right.
then their conversation became so ambiguous and vague, like a see-saw
or elastic band or even a bouncing ball, flying so high and so deep
concerning human relationship, things evolved around during the three
years time span, responsibility, world future, blah, blah and blah. the
guy carried a long neck glass bottle of water and drank it during the
conversation, and she licked and moisturized her lips and exclaimed:
"you carried water? you drink water?". obviously she was also a bit
thirsty, but the script did not arrange the man to offer her a sip of
water. the world was definitely going to an end, it might be the
Israelis and the Iranians would throw nuclear bombs to each other and
the part of the middle east might be totally destroyed or whatever your
imagination could carry you. but to me, this film is absolutely a
going-nowhere one, also inevitably a box office nightmare. you guys
could do whatever you like to prove that you are very deep and
thoughtful, and you truly understand what these two only actors really
tried to deliver, philosophical or metaphorical, deep or shallow, i
just couldn't care less.
