5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating glimpse into the lives of people in Tehran, 23 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: About Elly [DVD] (DVD)
The film is effective and concise in dealing with the emotions of a small group of friends dealing with a difficult situation. On top of that, the fact that it is set in Tehran provides additional appeal to me (British) because of my lack of knowledge of their place and culture.

I came to this film because of how brilliant 'A Separation' is. Whilst not quite as great as that film it is still a VERY good film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unusual pace which allows for some truly powerful moments that make you realize the weight of what is happening., 23 Oct 2013

The film relies on the patience of the viewer to be curious enough to try and work out what the main character is thinking and what his "story" really is.

It succeeds in doing this in my opinion but the film certainly isn't for everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic package, 30 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The box set is fantastic and contains every episode of Columbo including both pilot episodes. I was worried at first because disc one did not have the pilots but they are located on the 3rd disc of season 1.

The box is a very useful compact size and the discs are very easy to get out and put back in so no problems there. All of the front covers to the DVD sleeves are identical and there are no extras on the discs but I'm not complaining since those are minor points as compared with owning EVERY EPISODE in one package!

Whole heartedly recommended.
