Hatef Alimardani, with a new Linear storyline, entered Fresh spirit to the social trend of the 1960s period time in iran. Abajan movie, is a family that under the influence of everyday events, become weak but not collapse. All the events and currents story are perceptible to the families of today, who are looking for the past. The fascination of Mastery role of Fatemeh Motamed Arya is undeniable and she portrays self-governing order in preventing the patriarchal family colapse in his own time lonely. Although his assistant is in the role of Havu "second wife of her husband" in that family, the decency of self-determination and its unceasing power in routine decision-making, the origin of the effects of the turning points in story. she controls, helps, does not fool, acts, The camera focuses on it, and if we want to summarize her in a sentence, the life of this family starts with her. The story's stream, however, does not transfer the full of thrill rhythm to the audience, even in the body of the various themes that occur in the film, as it is worthy and anticipated. It seems that the issues that have arisen do not affect much of the boom or that they are going to be controlled. The various issues that have arisen are each of itself attractive and good, provided that its action increase the stress of the story, but did not happen as it should be. The final section of the film points to an event that actually happened, but not as it should be makes. The point of reference and the unveiling of a dramatic end in the true sense of a key problem solving the flow of the current viewer is summarized in an event that has repeatedly been repeated from the beginning of the storyline, In general, it's not possible to convey the final approach of the film to the end of a fascinating story. A report that focuses on theend of story.
