Responding to the previous reviews' question.
27 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

Why are they subjugated to such a nasty subhuman treatment ? This is an issue which should have been addressed by the director but unfortunately there is no hint of it in the film.

To answer the previous review: I am studying this film in Women Writer's grad class and the film is adhering the the Iranian's government film laws. The Iranian government has a list of rules that film-makers must follow in order to have their films produced. Tahmineh Milani makes the most subversive cries she can against the government without breaking these rules. She is not allowed to directly attack the government so the symbolism is issued through the patriarchal representation. Hadj Safdar represents the Iranian government in the film. Tahmineh Milani is currently on house arrest for the creation of this film.
