Self-made eternal condemnation:
27 March 2016 | by (Iran) – See all my reviews

I didn't like Life +1Day. It isn't a bad film, but it's a passive film. There's a sequence on the film that Somayeh asks from Morteza: "What is Life +1Day?" And Morteza responded her Life +1Day means eternal condemnation without any forgiveness. Also The film Characters have been sentenced to live in this kind of terrible and hopeless life. But the annoying thing is that they don't do any attempt to get out of this kind of living.

The story revolves around Somayeh, She's a kind and selfless girl. She accepted to married with a rich Afghan man (nazir) for his brother Morteza who want to open a new fast food Shop and begin a new life with her lover with the money receive from groom instead of this wedding. Another people in this house (read: life) look at this issue from different angles, and the similarity in their looking is passivity.

Azam left this house Because she wants to end her misery, but she continually returns to this house. But I don't understand why she doesn't help to solve the finance issue of his family even though she receives her husband blood money every month and goes to Dubai and Kish island for entertainment and wants to register for a new expensive car.

Mohsen clearly says he isn't able to leave his addiction and wants to sell more Methamphetamine for paying to Nazir and survive his sister from this unwilling arranged marriage.

Shahnaz think about the money that she wants to receive from a person who injured the face of her son, because she can rent a new house near this house (read: this life) by this blood money.Maybe she decided to come back home for the lack of her absent husband.

Leila already has determined their fate and she sees their future like Azam , Shanaz, or thousands girls that only reason of their marriage is fear of remaining without husband.

Also there is passive treatment in mother behavior. She hides some Methamphetamine to give to Mohsen for selling it and handle his expenses.

And Morteza is the most dangerous person. In another sequence on the film he said:" everyone who stay in this home is dog, and everyone go and come back is less than dog." But he doesn't try to leave this home and wants to send Somayeh to Afghanestan and Mohsen to camp, because he decides to start a new life in this home with his lover.

Even Somayeh is a passive person. When Navid asked her: "why do you want to leave us?" she said: 'I want to go because I think the fear of losing me make a reason to another family member to live such as ordinary people.'

And the last family member is Navid, genius fatherless boy. He seemingly sacrifices in these social and family problems. But I think he is the sacrifice of passivity.
