Christoph Maria Herbst,
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

The most realistic narrated movie about Iran!
It's the most realistic narrated movie about Iran and our crap regime...
Of course its visual and some things about it can be more realistic and much more beautiful but there are lots of things in it that history must to know about!
By the way it's an adult oriented movie and not a family movie, be careful there are lots of inappropriate stuff in it for children like sex, abortion, porn, drugs, adultery, suicide, prostitution, strong language... I'm saying that because it's an animation and can 'cos misunderstanding sometimes.
It's a really suffocating experience to live in Iran. it's good to know that people from other countries know about it and care about it, they can see it in these kinda movies and try to avoid it in their countries, I mean don't let Islam or any other religion ruin your country like ours...!
