I watched this movie recently and although the movie itself lacks punch, it does give one a good glimpse of upper middle-class society in Iran. The greatest drawback in the movie, IMO, is the lack of emotion in the main characters. Not once does the husband touch Leila's hand or have any physical contact with her even when they are in private. Although this was probably because of censorship issues, it does make the relationship look very artificial. The highlight of the movie for me was the extraordinarily beautiful face of Leila. It was such a joy watching this stunning Iranian face that I missed the subtitles whenever she spoke! What a pity we can't see her in less modest clothes in a Hollywood movie!
