Average User Score: 8.9Feb 27, 2012This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. A tragedy of errors with a very easy to see political analogy:
The old father is Iran. A country with Alzheimer forgetting its own people. An incontinent regime pissing on its youth. The unborn child stands for a free democratic Iran, killed before birth. Where? On the same street where the green revolution, the embryonic state of democracy, was killed in 2011.
Pregnant Razieh tries to rescue the old man/the country/her income for the sake of the future generation.
The two couples stand for the majority in Iran.
In spite of good intentions most of the time they lie, fight or escape the country.
Too loyal or afraid to see the truth: Rashomon in Iran.
Very ironic that the Iranian leaders praise the movie and don't see the obvious, like fish don't notice the sea or the five blind men can't recognize the elephant they feel. Only the children see the reality and offer some hope. The little girl plays with the oxygen levels.
The choice of Termeh in the final scene is the choice the youth in Iran stands for:
leave the country or stay and revolt, again.
Shirin Yazdi… Expand
