In this gorgeously animated drama, the lives of several strong-willed women and a young musician intersect. Their stories reveal the hypocrisies of modern Iranian society, where sex, drugs, and corruption coexist with strict religious law. In the bustling metropolis of Tehran, avoiding prohibitions has become an everyday sport and breaking taboos can be a means of personal emancipation. Nevertheless, women invariably end up on the bottom rung of the social order. A young woman needs an operation to "restore" her virginity. A judge in the Islamic Revolutionary Court exhorts favors from a prostitute in exchange for a favorable ruling. The wife of an imprisoned drug addict is denied the divorce she needs in order to live independently. Making use of rotoscope animation, expat Iranian filmmaker Ali Soozandeh creates a portrait of contemporary Tehran that would be impossible by any other means.Written by
...one of the most powerful and provocative and useful. Its subject - the freedom. Not only in Iran but as escape from hypocrisy, fear, pressures and fear. Lives . And decisions controlling aspects defining them. Great animation, solid stories, special manner to explore the near reality. And tools for defining it. At first sigh, a film against oppression of religion. In essence, a pledge for accept the rights of the other. Well crafted, it remains a time in memory for the atmosphere. And for the clear, honest message.
