Un cinéma puissant et courageux qui, malgré la menace permanente de la censure, réussit à garder les yeux ouverts pour décrire les injustices d’une société corsetée par la tradition et condamnée à une forme de fatalisme.

While Rasoulof’s talent shines in the design and the structure of the screenplay, it is Mohammadi’s compassionate and meticulous mise en scène that renders the film so compelling to watch.
