Critic Reviews for Secret Ballot
A psychic journey deep into the very fabric of Iranian ... life.
A comedy that provides serious testament to the arduous, often dreary, always imperfect work of democracy.
The filmmaker's greatest achievement is that he avoids preaching or taking sides and deftly proves that the weightiest issues can still come tinged with humor and irony.
A beguiling, slow-moving parable about the collision of past and present on a remote seacoast in Iran.
Audience Reviews for Secret Ballot
If there is any humor, I did not find it. I like the story. The characters are a little bland and predictable. I enjoyed it overall.
The subtle humor between the agent and the soldier is great. A little slow-paced (but it's not an American film, so spending three minutes watching someone walk from point A to point B back to A again with no reason is a surprise) but a fun little journey to watch.
Nassim Abdi is so loveable and admirable in this. The really unique thing about it is that we never know her political beliefs, just that she feels strongly about the democratic process. Her relationship with the soldier is really fun:)
