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.
| Original Score: 1/4

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

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.
