A movie about liberty, made in a prison.
2 February 2019 | by mitkobozovSee all my reviews

Pull the curtains, hide yourself, don't open the door, be afraid, you are being watched! A real portrail of a what it is like, when you are imprisoned. Panahi, wisely avoids making the movie overly political, thus letting all of us able to relate. No matter the issue in your life, fear locks you up. And it is fear to blame not the outside world. Sometimes we need an intruder to break us free, so that we can tear the curtains apart. Panahi, in line with the artistic tradition chooses a woman to be the bearer of liberty.
