In 20 years, nose jobs in Iran have gone from 10,000 per year to 60,000 or 70,000. This film asks why. Oskouei talks to high school students, women, men, doctors, nurses, clerics, actors, scholars, and a filmmaker about why they think Iran is the "nose job capital of the world." People have them to attract a mate, to reduce teasing, to gain self-confidence, or to get ahead at work. Some reject it as just fashion or superficial. A filmmaker describes the difficulty of casting historical films because all the actresses have nose jobs. Clerics lament the decline of values and leadership. A post-operative youth groans. Doctors discuss their fees. Polka dots and moonbeams. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A documentary on the subject of the nose, at which moment the fever of nose surgery in Tehran and the big cities of Iran was intensely explosive, was directed by Mehrdad Oskouyi, which, according to interviews and field surveys, showed the depth and penetration of fever have given. The crucial point in the construction and portrayal of this work can be seen from a variety of angles to the subject, in this regard, the work is well done. The subject is examined from the angle of aesthetics, complication both in terms of collective psychology and in terms of medical disaster, as well as on the external angle, free expression from the outside and the attitude of an external photographer, which reflects the diversity in the realistic examination More effect. Although the film was made in 2005, however, it is a good idea for anyone looking for a change in their face to look at at least once.
