  • Shokrian, who was born in Tehran, is trying to say something about assimilation and xenophobia, but the predictable story and stereotypical characters do him in.

    May 30, 2003 | Rating: 1/4
  • Unfortunately Shokrina's sense of style periodically collapses, and the film falls prey to the worst kind of models.

  • As much as the film would like to blow the lid off immigrant misery, it deals only in caricatures.

  • Shokrian ... possesses a sharp eye for detail and a lacerating wit (dulled, unfortunately, by the repetition of ideas and the hammering of points).

    May 27, 2003
  • While providing a fresh perspective on a different troubled time in our history, this challenging but flawed film nonetheless manages to be a much needed affirmation of the American Dream.
