Storyline

Naderi's second film is set in the slums of Tehran. Hanging out in a pool hall, Ali Khoshdast becomes involved in a brawl with three brothers, and accidently kills one of them. He runs for his life, eventually taking refuge in the home of a young woman. The victim's brothers continue the chase, and finally close in on him. Following the murder, streets, alleys and houses that were all part of Ali's everyday world suddenly become dangerous and hostile. Although in many ways a classic tale of revenge, Naderi uses this story to imply that an underlying violence pervades society, ready to burst forth with or without justification.

Haunting music and a very sad but possible story
7 November 2017 | by frabii-81-835931See all my reviews

This is probably the best Iranian movie before the revolution. Love; tragedy and in a very deep and touching way. The actor is just perfect for the job. Made me cry as he sells parts of his life to survive. When you sell all you have what is left? What and who are you? A true view into the lives are the poor and the rejected.
