..."The Day I Became a Woman" doesn't really capture the imagination at the end.

"The Day I Became a Woman" is a trio of fables which simply yet evocatively lay out the problems of being a woman in Iran.

Creates a flow of symbolism so potent, so transporting in its physicality, that its impact all but transcends its righteous liberal 'meaning.'

April 6, 2001
A bold, vibrant piece of filmmaking that dares to not only question the justice of sexist orthodoxy, but to demonstrate the poignancy of lives trapped and twisted within its confines.

Achieves its social commentary through passion and poetry.

Each of [Meshkini's] stories has the timeless quality of a fable, and each has wisdom and a quiet, stoic sense of defiance in the face of patriarchal tradition.
Rod Armstrong

Too flimsy and brief (at a scant 78 minutes) to really have an impact.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
