worse than ordinary
22 November 2011 | by grahamdore98See all my reviews

another politically driven name with no talent as a director whatsoever.the film is just terrible and this guy gets full banking to make another film ? great directors used to really make movies, know their craft and leave this planet with much to learn from as now all you have to do or to be is to connect yourself to the politics of the day. really a waste of time and money.this movie is so below the average like so many European trash films " not trash as in Trash Genre of course, since those films are sometimes greatly executed and with brilliant results". the ac tings are far below average, and the twist and turns and story is so ordinary, i would not even give a student the money to do such a film as a start movie for a lousy career. sorry, i am just sounding angry perhaps but am not but seriously critical of all Iranian films, Iranian Directors and the rest of the world of cinema who is most opportunistically filling their pockets and writing critics worthy of Orson Wells films but instead for all these ordinary dramas and really inferior films in all perspectives from concepts to direction and production as well the actors are just O.K.
