Fascinating inside look at a rarely seen region.
... a hard yet visually beautiful portrait of grueling third world lives under the desperation of poverty and the terror of war.
A powerful first film from Iranian writer/director Bahman Ghobadi.
Dull drama from Iran.
A very moving film about a desperate people and their love of family.
slice-of-life story in which nothing much happens
Ghobadi's realist style is indistinguishable from that of many of his Iranian contemporaries.
The abuse of animals, and children in this film is just terrible. I'm not even sure what the heck I was supposed to understand by the ending.
This is one more powerful and deeply affecting films coming from Iran. Using non-professional actors from the region, Ghobadi is able to lay bare the devastating hardships of life in Kurdistan on the Iran-Iraq border. The children are what make this film, though. In particular, Madi, the handicapped brother, has an incredibly expressive face. Also, the 12 year old head of the family, Ayoub, shows his love and dedication to his family of brother and sisters in each scene.
Powerful film and yet another indication that some of the world's best films are coming out of Iran these days.
