5.0 out of 5 stars unpredictable, 15 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Women Without Men [DVD] [2009] (DVD)
This is one of few films were you read the synopsis but still don't know what to expect.
Throughout the film I found myself questioning what was real and what was imaginary. The effect the women had on their environment and vice versa. The identities of the women - did society shape them, or did they shape their own identity? I'll probably ponder over the ending for a while as to what it really meant.
If you can't get to grips with the symbolism within the film, then I'd say just accept the historical/political aspect of the film - being set in Iran in 1953. The current images of life in Iran, make it hard to think how different life may have been then.
The silence of Zarin - the only character whom does not speak. But she doesn't have to, her facial expressions say it all.
The orchard - is it heaven or hell?
Some women let go, some women won't let go.
