A simple story,Perfect acting,Magnificent ending.
5 February 2009 | by omid_pachinoSee all my reviews

This movie is the second movie of Bahram Beizai the best Iranian director.When I found the VCD version of this movie I somehow hesitated to watch it,despite the fact that I love Beizaie's work.Eventually,I watched it and boy I enjoyed it a lot.

Mr.Hekmati(Parviz Fanizade) a single and innocent young teacher arrives at an area in down town Tehran,where he starts teaching.One day he throws one of the students out of the class and there the story begins.Atie(Parvaneh Masoumi) who supports his brother and mother comes to school to ask from Mr.Hekmati that why he has thrown her brother out of the class.Then,somehow love at the first sight happens,but Hekmati keeps denying it.This is not the end of the story because there is a man who helps Atie gives her money and keep asking her to marry him.

The ending of this movie is great.I recommend this movie to all those people who love artistic movies.

Welldone Beizai.
