Veracity is undermined by the very idea that the subjects somehow are actors in their own story -- and yet The Apple is still quite touching.
Makhmalbaf elicits remarkably unaffected performances.
an allegory of Iran's longed-for emergence from repressive tradition into a more liberating modernity (especially for women).
Es un cine fundamental, básico y humano que enriquece la diversidad que siempre deberían mostrarnos las pantallas.
Presents a severe critique of the continued shabby treatment of women in patriarchial societies.
Makhmalbaf's impeccable feature-film debut is a witty and precociously intelligent docudrama.
A little bit of Hollywood might have spiced up this fascinating -- but maddeningly slow -- true story.
At once an effulgent exercise in life-affirmation and a bemusingly crude piece of exploitative filmmaking.
This tiny, alternately simple and complex movie is fascinating on a number of levels.
As that old axiom goes, truth is stranger than fiction. Unless, of course, the fiction in question is one that's based on some very strange truths.
Samira Makhmalbaf was only 18 when she made The Apple, but it is a surprisingly mature, assured piece of work.
Perplexing and provocative.
Samira Makhmalbaf was only 17 when she made this impressive exposé of this revolting real story and of the blatant gender inequality in Iran - and it is really shocking to see that those girls were sent home by a social worker after being discovered in such deplorable conditions.
The Apple it's one of the exemples that show to us how terrific is the Iran cinema.
