Not Great, But Good Enough.
2 July 2016 | by PegaahSee all my reviews

Maani Haghighi is trying to do something "different" here and he's not afraid of the critics. That's admirable to me, especially best movies ever made by Iranians are mostly good "drama", and do not have the innovation factor to them. Yes, I personally love a good drama, but I would LOVE to see something different from time to time and I loved that Haghighi tried to do such a thing. May it change something in our cinema.

Some people don't like narrative films (I've heard that a lot about many movies and series like Modern Family), which I thought was perfect for this movie.

It is a bit hard to follow at first, because you don't know what you should be expecting and you don't get what is happening. But when you get used to it, you get more comfortable with the movie itself and will start enjoying it.

It is important to know that the point was not finding the answer to their question, but to get what happened to the characters, how it happened and how they ended up where they ended up at last. If you keep thinking about "the question", you will find the movie disappointing.
