a sorrowful accomplishment
5 February 2019 | by aminifatimaaaSee all my reviews

Bahram Tavakoli paints celluloid with the colours of despair and misery to highlight the ever-resilient Iranian soldiers. Focusing more on the daily struggle of a group of soldiers, we follow the very last days of the Iran- Iraq war. Using professional actors, Tavakoli finds a dynamic realism in how the soldiers project their real life experience to the fictional narrative and it's his skill as a visual and poetic filmmaker that enables viewer to form a powerful response to the grim material.
