Mohammad Reza Forutan,
A man is fired from his job. Having no more options, he decides to go find work abroad, leaving behind his wife and daughter. Months pass and his family hear no word from him. A stranger, a mechanic, arrives in town in search of work. His eyes wander to the beautiful young woman whom he hears no longer has a husband. A struggle to survive of a generation torn between wanting to leave its country yet bound by blood to home.Written by
A beautiful film that tells an emotionally complex story of alienation and longing with the minimum of dialogue.
That is all I wanted to say really, but it seems brevity is not a virtue sort by IMDb. I understand the ten line minimum; IMDb does not want to be overwhelmed by vacuous one line reviews. But surly my well chosen 18 words are a triumph of economy and concision, and through these excellent qualities are exempt to such a well meaning yet indiscriminate prohibition. Furthermore there can be little danger of "It's Winter" being overwhelmed by reviews of any sort... My vain blathering seem to have taken me over the quota...
