The basis of the film centers around a conflict between two men & two families, middle class v poor, modern v tradition. The strength of the film is the way it constantly shifts your opinion of the characters and what really took place, you may go from liking a character to firmly disliking them and then back to being unsure, in this way the characters are complex, rich and flawed, they feel real and authentic unlike most characters in cinema. Both the men may be enemies but they share plenty in common too, they both have a nasty side to them, each with long suffering wives & an innocent daughter. The story also features a helpless old man with alzheimer's disease who is genuinely pitiable. The cinematography favours a subdued look, with lots of greys, pale greens, light purples and whites.

The Blu ray comes with 1080p resolution, picture aspect ratio 1.85:1 full screen and DTS-HD Master Audio 3.0.

This is a good story and easy to understand how life can just get out of control thorough no fault of your own. It is a honest look at a relationship where people want different things. Honour and family responsibility are fundamental and cleverly explored in this superb narrative. It is also a quick look at bureaucracy on Iran. A few hours well spent watching this.

The movie is a masterpiece, it needs to be watched carefully in order to follow little details which leads you to the answers of big questions. Termeh is a girl ,who is in her adolescence, and she always tries to keep the balance between his mother and father in order to make them come together, even so at the end of the movie she sends them out to save time, and she believes they will talk and fix things when they are together. But there is a separation between them in the end which is symbolised by a glass wall. And Termeh's hope will not work.

Absolutely worth watching. What starts as a little middle-class drama with confronted but mindful characters builds up in front of your eyes as a gorgeous story full of interesting personalities magnificently played by every actor, no matter if senile or too young to have an opinion. The film grabs your attention from beginning to end and unfolds with constant turns of events that seamlessly fit together. Nothing is irrelevant in the action, no one has a weak moment.

The lead characters are very good looking and their performances are really good. Personally I found the movie a bit dull.

A real gem of a movie that provides a very interesting (and quite surprising) insight into today's Iranian society. Although the story is better left untold, the script challenges you in your perception and opinion of the main characters scene after scene. The acting is top-notch and, although the pace is quite measured, the movie is never dull or boring. A movie I would warmly recommend to anybody who has a brain, a curiosity for the world out there, and thinks that there is a life beyond Transformers 27!
