Movie Info

Directed by Babak Payami, Sokaate Beine Do Feks (The Silence Between Two Thoughts) takes place in an exotic desert village where an executioner (Kamal Naroui) is ordered not to shoot a virgin female (Maryam Moghaddam) on the grounds that she would go to Paradise if killed in her "pure" state. His leader commands the executioner to marry the girl, sleep with her, and kill her once the deed is done. Besieged by doubt, he doesn't touch the prisoner after she takes up residence in his house. Meanwhile, the power hungry Hajui sends his goons off to murder a religious figure, inciting a riot from the villagers. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi

Unhurried and understated, Payami's film gives poignant testimony to the way ordinary souls deal with unimaginable terror.

A film of rare courage and power.

A minor masterpiece--a moving and economical story that profoundly examines the raw truths of fundamentalism.

June 5, 2004 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Doesn't sufficiently build on its intriguing premise.

June 1, 2004 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Could have made a nice short film, but it tries viewers' patience by having the story stretched to over an hour and a half with little happening.
