Storyline

On a pilgrimage to Mashad from Tehran, a couple's transportation breaks down, far from any major town. The husband, a photographer, seeks help at a nearby village and encounters a teacher who offers to help. Whilst the husband and teacher go off to find a spare part, the wife, who used to be a teacher, takes over the teaching lessons in the village. It is clear that the children live there, in this strange deserted place, without any men, save the teacher and an old signal guard. As the day draws on, the children help to bring a new hope and life into the wife's heart. Written by Sujit R. Varma

terribly weak
11 March 2006 | by acleanplayerSee all my reviews

Awful...extremely weak acting, discontinuous, boring story...i can't believe Kiarostami initiated the idea! The worst scenario ever...I think it is not actor's fault why dialogs are so rigid and senseless... do not waste your money by renting it...there are lots and lots of great Iranian movies you can watch...i am really sorry this one could pass several better ones and get into the international market...:-( The director takes advantage of Kiarostami's name and Leila Hatami's presence in the movie...and honestly, Leila Hatami does not even act so well...the idea of the movie could have been developed in a much better and more mature fashion...maybe if Kiarostami himself had decided to work on it, it would turn out a prize-winning movie. but this one is not really worth a dime...:-(
