For those who are watching this: I lived in Iran for 28 years ...Read more

Dark but culturally expressive storyline. Explores feminist concepts in a deeply patriarchal and oppressive society.

Beautiful and depressing. Impressed that a man made this film, focusing much on the plight of women and their lack of freedom and choice in Iran.

More caricature than film, it fails to depict any believable characters or events. And ultimately a disturbing delusion which claims to represent reality.

Being born in Iran is a misfortune especially if you are a woman. Such tragic and true.

I'm assuming that this depicts modern-day Iran? An incredibly engaging glimpse into Tehran life.
