Storyline

A sensation when released in 1999 in Iran, Two Women charts the lives of two promising architecture students over the course of the first turbulent years of the Islamic Republic. Tahimine Milani creates this scathing portrait of those traditions - aided by official indifference - which conspire to trap women and stop them from realizing their full potential; the inclusion of frank depictions of domestic violence was hailed by many as a breakthrough in dealing with a long taboo subject.

A must see masterpiece
27 September 1999 | by EhsanSee all my reviews

Two women( dou zan) is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It tells the story of society who couldn't tell its story for such a long time. Whether it could not see it or it could not say it. I adore her because what she did is a breakthrough. Though you may show sympathy for Fereshteh, but the issue is deeper than that. It tells about the rights which are being ignored and the humen who are being humulated just because of wrong social customs. Tahmineh milani showed she is truly an intellectual in broad sense of the word.Good for her that can see and say the vital problems in such away that touches almost everyone immediately. Full credit to her.
