It somehow goes beyond any ratings
15 January 2018 | by jerbojanSee all my reviews

This movie is life changer forever. This is the kind of movie that if it could be shown to all people around the World it will change the World for better. Or at least to people so called Western World. The leading actress Golshifteh Farahani, which now is established as an international star, with this film definitely deserved at least an Oscar nomination. You should see it to belive it. Any kind of adjective to praise this film seems inapropriate. Even the word masterpiece did not give You the meaning of what it is. It somehow goes beyond. Why? Because it is about maternity or better say Maternity. The movie has all what good movie hast to have, Screenplay, Acting, Direction, Cinematography, Editing, Music Score but it is in general the simple story and superb acting ( including kids) which will make anyone without exeption with wet eyes and trumbling heart. If You know and prize Separation by Farhadi, so watch M for Mother by Rasoul Mollagholipour to see another Universal Meaning Drama. A must see!!! I've seen in January 2018 and is absolutely actual like shooted in 2017.
