Kindergarten teacher Roshan finds herself in a quandary when she embarks on a quest to save the life of her student's father, who has been accused of unintentional homicide and faces the death penalty. There are witnesses to support him, however it soon becomes clear that they are afraid to comply because of the victim's powerful family's influence, and they are terrified of repercussions in their own lives. Roshan doggedly sticks to her goal in this tale of one woman against a corrupt judicial system. Winner of the Crystal Phoenix at the 31st Fajr Film Festival, this drama is not to be missed.

Rooz-E-Roshan-An Iranian film which questions the notions of justice !!!!
11 March 2015 | by FilmCriticLalitRaoSee all my reviews

Iranian director Hossein Shahabi chose to highlight the importance of the criminal justice system in his homeland Iran.His debut feature The Bright Day (Rooz-e Roshan) depicts the relentless efforts of a brave woman to ensure that truth should prevail at all costs. What makes his film remarkable is the incessant travels carried out in the car by its protagonist Roshan who wouldn't stop at anything in order to save her lover from death penalty. She is constantly on the move in her car in order to convince witnesses to speak the truth which would result in a person escaping the death penalty. This film constantly reminds viewers a lot about films made by Abbas Kiarostami especially 'Close-Up' and 'Like Someone in Love' whose leading players were always on the move to achieve their personal goals. Iranian actress Pantea Bahram is quite convincing in her role as the lone crusader of justice. It was for this film that Hossein Shahabi won silver crow pheasant award for best débutant director during 19th International Film Festival of Kerala 2014.
