Top Iranian movie, best start to Persian Cinema
This movie is moral. It's influence on me a lot. I really enjoy it.
I love Asghar’s movies. He truly is from an independent cinema
It was such beautiful movie but it has open ending such as all farhads movie
Though the characters were often extremely frustrating, they were also quite believable. An uncomfortable but interesting watch.
If you're a Farhadi's fan, go watch this
A great Iranian movie and one of the best movies of Asghar Farhadi! And of course rewatchable.
