a very sweet film
9 March 2006 | by shahabkalim-1See all my reviews

I saw this movie with English subtitles as i don't understand farsi , but yes i am very happy that i picked this movie .. If you want to have a look at innocent cinema,this is the movie for you .please do not miss this film. Its a very innocent and sweet film about a girl called Hayaat.. A teenager's DETERMINATION, confusions,struggle ,desperation, over enthusiasm have all been captured beautifully in the 75 minutes long movie..

The child who plays Hayat's brother in the movie, is just terrific.. Cinema from Iran has certainly got a very bright future..This nation keeps churning out one great movie after another. I don't know if Hayat won any award at any festival or not but I would like each and every parents to show this film to their children.

The director is in control of each n every frame of this movie and once the movie is 10 minutes old I assure you, you too like me will become a part of the film's surrounding and feel like a character of this miniature masterpiece.. Go help Hayat reach her destination which is....... ( Can't spoil the classic,go see it)
