The world has gone through so much and it has not changed yet.

On the political level this film is sensational! It's a ... read more

" Tightrope walks a line between sensationally erotic and serious examination of contrasting social forces in contemporary Iranian culture. This film is intensely sexy and wonderfully subversive. So yes, this is exciting cinema. The performances from each and every major player is very strong and there's an observant and sensitive emotional core to the entire film. Definitely recommended!"
