I found a delightful film, beautiful script, enjoyable acting, beautiful art direction and everything else ... What is disenchanted is knowing that in Iran and many other countries with this "religion" exists outside of fiction, and women are deprived of many things. The world has gone through so much and it has not changed yet.

" 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.
