  • An intimate, discursive inquiry into religious belief that opens to include questions about cinema ...

    August 8, 2013 | Rating: 4/5
  • Delicately works to see how beautiful the world can look when people embrace each other's differences.

  • It is by turns poetic, impressionistic, metaphorical and even a bit trippy - without satisfying such genre basics as structure, depth and resolution.

    August 1, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Images and metaphors whimsicially combine in a fine, fast-flowing documentary introducing the Baha'i faith.

  • With their civilized discussion and amusing asides about the making and marketing of docus, the Makhmalbafs succeed in entertaining and engaging auds who are interested in the question of why people seek religion.
