In the beginning there is a dancer and a girl watching the dancer. The first time the watcher appears, she is smoking a cigarette and it's almost half smoked, the second time she appears the cigarette seems to be just started. See more »

Amazing Cinematic Achievement
I saw this film at Outfest 2011 and was blown away not only by the film's quality of visual and emotional impact, but also the amazing achievement that the artists have made by getting this story told in the first place. The international cast and crew have each taken big risks by telling this gripping story about two young women in love in Iran.
Our audience at the screening was struck by the POSITIVE and FUN images of Iranian youth- excited, energetic, comedic, brave. Very much in contrast with what the media tells us Tehran "looks like." The two female leads are incredibly stunning and give amazing performances. They say more with their eyes than paragraphs or monologues would need to convey. Their chemistry is palpable and the brief but urgent love scenes make any audience member root for their success.
The Director, Maryam Keshavarz, is talented, well-spoken, has a clear and distinct voice and is someone to watch.
