This film make us deeply thinking. Thinking about accepting or not accepting that being beautiful is a solid reason to be vulnerable. In fact, one-sided opposition to a society where the majority of its mankind suffers from the complexities of one-sidedness of traditionalism requires a strong soul. The key question is whether the movie wants to believe or accept us. Accepting the belief that such a world is outside the angle of view of the pretty girl of the city is very hellish and horrible. What ever before and after the incident. Of course, this is evident after the incident, but before that, the question is whether it is a pleasure to be seen with this volume. Believe which direction to look at, in what direction, can it be appealing in the face of its apparent connotations that mark us? Whether the subject matter in the cinema may have a fruitful effect is directly related to the capacity, culture, and the type of exposure to the geographic mass of that country. But as a foreigner, the viewer of this film, considering that it does not sad us, must be seen and think about how close this attitude is to us. The slightest thing that can be seen for how the film is influenced by the national dimension of both the constructive and the global dimension is the bitter laugh that we may face from our unconscious acceptance of the approval of this issue, and the adoption of this rule, which at least With certainty it can not be totally rejected. The degree of sensitivity to acceptance and rejection of the audience is a moral medal that we all humans deny and give ourselves to. The film is artistically pointing out the psychological effects of a very shaky and unpredictable (rape) attack, so that we believe that all of us collapse in the failure of such a futile structure and cease. The film, of course, contains inscrutable points, so far as we do not know exactly how love can affect this level of logic as well, one who desperately wants to die. Its extraordinary sequences include the latest sequences. We do not have mercy to each other death.
