An amazing documentary
19 March 2014 | by zohrabi64See all my reviews

If you are interested in Iran's contemporary history and the middle east in general; don't miss out on this movie. It brings a period of time to our attention that despite all the books and documentaries and movies that have been discussing and describing it; lots of it's aspects have remained unknown "The Iranian Revolution", Dan Shadur the son of an Israeli couple amongst many of the Israeli community in Tehran before the revolution, interviews his fathers colleagues and friends about their experiences of living in Iran, their memories, the circumstances and the pros and cons, surprisingly they all have a unique feeling toward Iran, and talk about their memories with a great passion; they talk about the similarities between Iranians and Jewish people, their life style in Tehran and their high salaries and it was very entertaining and interesting at the same time to look at the pictures of Iran decades ago. As an Iranian I did not know that such relations existed between Iran and Israel, it was really interesting and I think I'm going to watch it again.
