Critic Reviews for Gabbeh
Movies such as this work like meditation or music, to nudge us toward the important.
There is hardly a composition in the film that couldn't be extracted and framed.
Audience Reviews for Gabbeh
Loved it! A very compelling tale.
I have zero clue what happens in this, but I liked it somehow.
Now here we see a movie that could be seen as borderline miraculous. Any time somebody makes a movie in Iran that thinly veils any statement about women other than that they should be stoned to death for wearing bright colors, and doesn't end up decapitated themselves, it is noteworthy. But I exaggerate slightly. It's like if Ingmar Bergman took a huge hit of acid and made a movie about rugs. One of the prettiest movies out there with all the color, and enough of a love story to avoid being too far "out there".
