Well-directed, well-acted realistic movie
11 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

This well-directed and well-acted movie, telling different short stories, gives a realistic view of contemporary Tehran and Iran. The director is actually revisiting her old characters in her previous movies to see what has happened for them after these many years. Having known that, even without seeing and remembering all previous characters, the film has its own great new and independent stories. Movement from each tale is smooth although the duration of each part is not timely balanced.

After all, the effort of the director and actors to show true stories of normal life, although it is looking at the dark side, is well worth watching for true cinema lovers who want to see realistic movie.
