This Movie is About Art and Artist. It's Very poetic Old movie But it is alright , sometimes i wonder if it is just the acting of jamshid mashayekhi or is it the writer or director , or is it all of them.
However, they are undoubtedly slower paced than other films, and they require the viewer to detach himself from any western stereotypes that he has about film. This would not be a good film for somebody expecting action or a typical Western film, but rather, this would be a film that I would recommend only to those who are in the mood for an insightful, philosophical film that shows an alternative view of life. Overall, it was an emotionally powerful film that will stick out in my memory as all ali hatami films do.
