[A] melancholy drama about the aftermath of a senseless murder.

Well acted and smartly written, the film is an eye-opening sociological portrait that also manages to be a compelling human drama.

Here's another deeply resonant little movie from Iran, featuring more polished (yet still naturalistic) acting than usually seen in U.S. productions.

It's a penetrating exploration of retribution versus forgiveness, blood money, sacrifice and the intricacies of Iran's Islamic judicial system.

Fascinating glimpse into wholly different body of laws, engrossingly evolving script and standout perfs, including Taraneh Alidoosti's ... make City more accessible to arthouse auds than more stylistically challenging Farsi fare.

Cross-pollinate an archetypal plotline with problematic romance and what you get is Beautiful City, a film in which the world is made immediate and kinetic.

The script, overly laden with red herrings, forces its characters into some improbable dilemmas...and the ambiguous ending feels inconsistent with the too tidy setup.
