I feel sad for the person who didn't enjoy this magnificent, subtle film. It's worth watching for Kingsley's performance alone, a performance that is, I think, the best of his career, alongside his role in Pascali's Island. The remarkable thing is how convincing he is as a certain type of old-school Iranian. The story is not just about his and his wife's particular dilemma, but about exile and the fate of the immigrant (cf. the novel, The Kite Runner). The ending must be one of the finest in cinema. There are no thrills, little humour, or any of the usual drives for such a tale, yet it pulls the viewer along effortlessly right to the climax/anticlimax. A definnite must-watch.
