8 years after his last film , once again Majid Majidi has done it.this time with the cooperation of some big names behind the camera. he has made a great film about the childhood of the holy profit , Muhammad.
the story is told in different episodes just like the way Quran tells stories , but here episodes don,t match perfectly and it could be more integrated.
the cinematography is one of the best i have ever seen.it seems that the camera flies everywhere along with the young hero.watching this film is just like watching beautiful paintings in a gallery.
the whole city is actually made in real size and it takes us to 7th CAD. the visual effects ,also is believable and beautifully illustrates a story told in Quran.
the best aspect of the film seems to be the music, made by A.R Rahman. it is really unique and impressive. 3 hours is too much for this drama and it could be shorter.
after all, this is a great film to watch. it,s just a long lovely poem.
