Wonderfully intelligent and perceptive The Iranian setting for this drama adds interest, but it's almost incidental to what makes this film so compelling. This contest between family members, between families, and between social classes could occur in any society. Deeply humane, the film is sympathetic to all the disputants, and the viewer is kept alert by the changes in perspective that come about every fifteen minutes with new turns in the plot and disclosures of information that upset assumptions, though they are always plausible.
One of the greatest truly amazing movie. Greater understanding of a different culture. Kind of sad and keeps you alert to the end. The ending felt so abrupt as it leaves you hanging. I would definitely recommend this movie.
Great Movie I am pretty sure that Jeffrey didn't understand the movie may be he was sleeping but this movie shows the most beautiful sense of humor any person may feel in their life don't miss this great movie
