don't trust on people so much
14 May 2011 | by milad621See all my reviews

Actually this movie had built at 1991. Beautiful movie like all movies of Darius Mehrjui. A memorable movie with good acting. Ezzatollah Entezami in a different way. also I enjoyed Khosro Shakibai. Bita Farahi A woman that finally understand that she never could rely on people. There is just one thing to rely on. No one else can help us. She understood that she should cut hope off all people. At the end she goes to find god. She moves to Mashhad A holy city of Iran. I had seen most of Mehrjui's works but not this one. I didn't knew Banoo is such good. Similar with Hamoun and Pari in some ways. I recommend this movie for all who enjoy Hamoun.
