Storyline

Alireza Shalikaran is serving time in prison for theft. He is a troublesome figure, trying as he does to escape from the prison and committing acts of violence. A handful he may be, but he finds a caring figure in the prison warden. The warden puts forward the case that Alireza might settle down when he finds a wife. Yet how is Alireza to find a wife when he is enclosed within the prison walls? The task of finding a marriage partner falls to Alireza's mother, who is also in prison. She comes across a young woman, who, though incarcerated for drug-related offences, is respectable. Will the match work? An interesting look at the limits of prison life. Written by IMVBox.com

I'm speechless
26 July 2006 | by mopbopcopSee all my reviews

What can you say about this film? Well...first off, there's an ungodly amount of still shots that seem to carry on forever. Secondly, the acting...oh the acting...I don't speak Iranian, but I know a little about human emotion...and these actors possessed little emotion. In one scene, it looked like they were reading scripts, in fact, I am almost positive...hell, I bet my life on it. The storyline seemed promising, however, within minutes of the films opening, you could tell that the storyline would be overshadowed by every negative aspect listed above. As far as the movies strengths, the wedding scene seemed very realistic, in fact, I'd swear it was. Overall, I gave it a 2 out of 10. Don't watch it. For real. I am not lying. Don't watch this film.
