A very good student documentary
19 March 2017 | by rafael105See all my reviews

Having visited Iran last year for the first time, I am fascinated by all things Iranian. And this film provides great insights into how the state oppresses people's lives there. Some great footage of fly-on-the-wall situations that really make you wonder how they managed to record such scenes at all. Things you would never have occasion to observe as a tourist, but which are obviously all around you, just under the surface. Those scenes alone make the film worth seeing, if you're interested in Iran. Apart from that, the narrative is a little shallow. Nothing much happens besides the tedious process of two young DJ's trying to make it out of Iran. Many people will probably find the film dull, especially those who go to see it for the music or club angle. I would have appreciated it if the director had been more forthright about why and how the film was made. Put herself into the picture a little more. Yet, for a first film, this is a very good piece of work. Hope to see more from her.
