[A] plodding and pretentious historical drama.
The writing, acting and direction are so amateurish that the only thing you'll care about is escaping the theater.
The director approaches the enormity of his task with an earnest enthusiasm, offering a likable alternative to the assembly-line banality of so many family films.
The story behind the making of The Keeper is more inspiring than the film itself.
Ambitious, heartfelt and grand in both its ideas and its pride of place (the Middle East), the film suffers from its virtues.
A reverentially pokey drama that plays less like a conventional movie than a lengthy series of hagiographic historical tableaux.
A lovely-looking, capably made motion picture.
Comes to us wrapped in hand-woven shawls of struggle and perseverance.
While sumptuously beautiful, the film is often stilted and undermined by some painfully amateurish performances that no good intentions can smooth over.
More education than entertainment, Mashayekh's first feature length film tells a valid story but fails to produce on the promise of court intrigues and swordplay.
The Keeper suffers from a surfeit of scattershot acting and clunky narrative devices that usher the viewer back and forth through time with all the subtlety of a culture clash.
The movie gets historical with the warring factions in Persia, Hassan's attempt to assassinate the Sultan, and other Lawrence of Arabia style stuff in the desert.
