very different!!!
1 April 2010 | by yekayekSee all my reviews

"Trial on the street" is quite realistic both in dialogue and narration,the characters and events in the movie are more tangible,convincing;characters are less heroic and symbolic.there is less exaggeration in every aspect of the movie compared to his other works,(this factor might make the movie less exciting for kimiaei's fans).the movie does not try to entertain you or surprise you as much as it attempts to simply tell a story that is sure as hell worth telling. a beautiful ending that makes you think about the brutality and cruelty of what you just witnessed,The Human Nature. I can't say its his strongest work after the revolution but it is the most versatile one,the movie is depicting quite a few new and interesting ideas and holds thousands of promises for his movies to come.
