Elegant and beautiful: Iranian cinema at its best!,
This review is from: At Five In The Afternoon [DVD]  (DVD)
Just a beautiful slab of Iranian cinema.
Nogreh, a young women in post-Taliban Afghanistan battles against harsh living conditions and the intolerance of her father to gain an education and a future for herself. She even dreams of being the first woman president one day. Samira Makhmalbaf's third film is her best: at once neo-realist and allegorical, making the most of the harsh and beautiful landscape to present a 'borderless' vision of the victory of hope over despair.
