One of the greatest movies ever
25 January 2006 | by anti_modern103See all my reviews

WOW !!! I've just seen it . A MASTERPIECE ! Really great ! I don't know why it's not on the Top 250 and instead of this a film like PULP FICTION is no 8 there ! I'd seen Travellers And Maybe Some Other Time form Beyzaee before . I just feel sorry for that his films aren't world-wide known and I think they should really be ! Perfect decoupage ,mizanscene , directing . Really good acting . A clever plot ... ! Beizaee is himself and has a very particular cinema and he's influenced a lot form Hitchcock .That's more obvious in MAYBE SOME OTHER TIME . I Suggest it to all !! & I wonder why it's not available on Amazon . And I have to say that Beyzaee is very strong in theatre too and his plays are really powerful ,you must see. You know many plays are just plays but you can read Beyzaee's plays as a story and enjoy it and that's a typical of him .
