Storyline

The graphic account of a poverty-stricken family living in Tehran through the days before the youngest daughter of the family, Somaieh, is departing to start her marriage to a supposedly rich Afghan. While all members of the family have their worries about the wholeness of the marriage, she is struggling with her madly debilitating troubles including a silly mother who is gravely ill, a drug abusing brother, an obsessively compulsive sister, a considerably smart teenage brother who is being ruined in the environment, and a cunning oldest brother in need of money.

We did not experience. We only appeared as a viewer. It was not necessary to be same like that because it was perceptible and tangible for almost every kind of audience. It's as if somewhere near us is happening or has already happened. We laughed, we cried and judged, as a viewer. Anger effect was certain. When the film came to an end, need for free space and review step by step of the movie, complete a significant movie effect. As for the characters in the story, it's enough that the audience finally concludes that, despite the apparent faults of the characters, no one is to blame and all the faults should be left to fate. All characters are a function of the conditions. But I think that, beyond these reactions, the demand for the film was something else. The film asked us to make an identification instead of judging. Asked us to understand what the dangers of the crowded family are struggling with poverty. The film asked us to hear the words of Mohsen (Navid Mohammadzadeh), despite the fact that audience translated he is an abnormal obscurity brutish in the first place. But Pain of not understand. A misunderstanding of past generations that portrays itself in the form of a crowded family, to show abnormalities that the family faces today, and to portray itself as a extremist, conservative, and fearless personality. Laughter sequences from the bottom and crying from the bottom in the cinema had a confusing atmosphere that showed real effect. The film's cinematic experience was specific to one of the spectators in the last quarter continued with a cigarette. Others were melting in a way that someone did not attention to an angry viewer and his cigarette's bad smell. at the end: Our cinema really needs such as this films. Films that really push audiences dumb or into a deep inside challanging and push into judging and not doing space.
